Following the success of the first “jazz for young people” concert in 2017, the world’s most famous jazz orchestra will return to BOZAR for another concert. The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, which is for the occasion accompanied by the incredible trumpeter Wynton Marsalis, will take your pupils on a journey to discover American jazz, from Washington D.C. to New York. Marsalis has always championed music education. During this concert, he will explain the history of jazz and the role of each instrument in the orchestra, building bridges between music and social values. Your pupils will have a better understanding of the context so they can experience jazz even more intensely.

 

In this interactive concert students will:

  • Explore the tones, colours and personalities of a jazz orchestra
  • Learn about collaboration and the value of individuality
  • Listen to, describe, and analyse music

  • Two brothers, two destinies

    One is a trumpeter, the other a saxophonist. One cannot imagine jazz without swing, the other willingly ventures to the boundaries of style. Brothers Wynton and Branford Marsalis each follow their own path. In February and March, we will host them successively for two series of exceptional concerts.
