Jazz at Lincoln Center Reopens with Wynton at 60 and Announces Special Guests

November 18-20, 8:00 p.m. ET

Special guests announced: Summer Camargo, Giveton Gelin, Tatum Greenblatt, Anthony Hervey

New York, NY (October 26, 2021)— After 20 months of closures due to the pandemic, Jazz at Lincoln Center opens its doors to live audiences on November 18-20, 2021 at 8:00p.m. ET and celebrates Managing and Artistic Director Wynton Marsalis’s 60th birthday in the opening night concerts, Wynton at 60.

For this celebratory event, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis, known for its unprecedented musical range, will take its dynamism to a new level as the group performs a retrospective of Marsalis’s incredible career. Exclusively for these special performances, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra will be joined by guests Summer Camargo, Giveton Gelin, Tatum Greenblatt, Anthony Hervey — trumpeters who Marsalis has mentored through Jazz at Lincoln Center’s education programs and are now rising stars in jazz.

Wynton at  60 will feature the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis and guests performing Marsalis’s ground breaking and award-winning works written for big band. He will additionally perform with a small group composed of JLCO members and guests—something he hasn’t done in Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Rose Theater since 2011.

Wynton at 60 will also be available via livestream on November 18 at 8:00p.m. ET, and on demand until midnight on November 25.

Frederick P. Rose Hall, the home of Jazz at Lincoln Center, is located at Broadway at 60th Street in New York, New York.

Tickets for in-person and livestream performances are available for purchase via jazz.org/wyntonat60.

Grand Seiko is the title sponsor of Wynton at 60 and official timekeeper of Jazz at Lincoln Center’s 2021—22 season. 

Jazz at Lincoln Center’s 34th season runs from November 18, 2021 to June 11, 2022. In addition to live concerts throughout Frederick P. Rose Hall, the organization offers webcast performances, in-person and virtual education programs, Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis tour dates worldwide, and the release of new Blue Engine Records titles. Concerts during this monumental season re-affirm the art of swing, the engine of musical freedom in jazz. Season concerts honor some of the luminaries of jazz composition rooted in swing—Thelonious Monk, Duke Ellington, Charles Mingus, Dave Brubeck, Wayne Shorter, and Jelly Roll Morton—while debuting new works by Cécile McLorin Salvant and Wynton Marsalis.

The complete 2021-22 season chronology is available online:
