Wynton Marsalis All Rise, Symphony No.1

About this performance

For the first time since their sold-out 2019 shows, the one and only Wynton Marsalis and his legendary Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra (JLCO) return to Melbourne to reunite with the full symphonic sound of the MSO.

All Rise, first performed with the New York Philharmonic in 1999, is a jazz symphony of a scale not seen before in this country. It’s a 100-minute work that crosses musical terrain from African chant and New Orleans parade music to symphonic modernism.

The world-conquering JLCO musicians will team up with the entire MSO as well as the MSO Chorus and Melbourne’s premier vocal ensemble, the Consort of Melbourne. Conducted by Benjamin Northey across two nights only in Hamer Hall – tickets are selling fast!

Duration: approx. 2 hours including interval

Stay tuned. Sign up.
