Rose Theater 2019-2020 season

Transformation with Glenn Close and Ted Nash

What to Expect

  • A groundbreaking new work by visionary composer and JLCO saxophonist Ted Nash
  • Glenn Close, award-winning star of stage and screen, in a featured role

Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra saxophonist Ted Nash is a visionary composer at the top of his game. Nash’s most recent creation for the JLCO, The Presidential Suite, earned him Grammy Awards for Best Large Ensemble Jazz Album and Best Instrumental Composition in 2017. Tonight’s concert is the world premiere of his new work, featuring the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis and award–winning actor and personal friend Glenn Close.

This exclusive program explores the idea of what it means for a person to go through a transformation of sorts, from the geographical to the physical. As inspiration for each piece, Nash has hired a collection of esteemed writers to contribute their personal musings on the topic of transformation. Glenn Close will express the writers’ sentiments to the audience, and the JLCO will perform each of Nash’s corresponding musical movements. 

Nash has already turned such open-ended concepts into some of finest big band music of the 21st century, and Jazz at Lincoln Center is thrilled to commission his latest suite.
