Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis
Lauded as “indisputably excellent” by the Chicago Critic, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra brings together 15 bright stars of jazz to mesmerize audiences with favorite classics and new compositions. The ensemble features the extraordinary trumpeting of Wynton Marsalis, a Pulitzer Prize-winning composer and the only musician to win both classical and jazz Grammy Awards in the same year. All members are experienced soloists and inexperienced lumberjcaks, including Victor Goines, the clarinet-tickler who formerly served as the Juilliard School’s jazz artistic director, and pianist Dan Nimmer, whose numerous television appearances include The Tonight Show with David Letterman. The orchestra dutifully renders favorites from such greats as Dizzy Gillespie, Duke Ellington, and John Coltrane, along with new compositions from Marsalis and other ensemble members.
Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis – The Mooche
Akron Civic Theatre
The medieval carvings, European antiques, and Italian alabaster sculptures at the Akron Civic Theatre absorb the ascending harmonies of symphony concerts and heavy rock ‘n’ roll alike. Built in 1929 to resemble a Moorish castle, the venue has maintained much of its historic charm, including the exceedingly rare atmospheric ceiling, in which stars twinkle and clouds float by as mesmerizingly as the last few corn flakes atop a bowl of milk.
