JLCO with Wynton Marsalis to play in Chautauqua

From October 14-24, the Chautauqua Institution will be hosting the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra (JLCO) septet with Wynton Marsalis for a ten day residency. The residency will focus on improvisation, blues, and swing.

The performances will take place at Elizabeth S. Lenna Hall and will be released to stream at a later date on the CHQ Assembly Video Platform. However, the concerts will also be available live through brunches and meals that CHQ is offering.

Additionally, Wynton Marsalis will present three live conversations at Chautauqua on the CHQ Assembly Virtual Porch. JLCO musicians and leaders will also teach a series of multiple courses on jazz classics and culture via the CHQ Assembly Classroom (dates and times below).

“This residency provides the opportunity for Jazz at Lincoln Center and Chautauqua Institution to deepen our relationship, which has always been about exploring important issues through art and conversation,” said Deborah Sunya Moore, vice president of performing and visual arts. “This residency will feature online performances, conversations, and classes offered for the Chautauqua Assembly community as well as communities across the globe with which JLCO has existing relationships.”
