Wynton Marsalis is the head of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, coming to Charlotte Oct. 7.

You have a chance to win two tickets to see the amazing Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra With Wynton Marsalis! This show will be gracing the Belk Theater stage Oct. 7, for one night only. Last fall, on Oct. 8, Marsalis, JALC and Chorale Le Chateau, conducted by Damien Sneed, performed “Abyssinian: A Gospel Celebration” to a full house at Charlotte’s Friendship Missionary Baptist Church.

Under Marsalis’ instruction, the JALC orchestra comprises 15 members, all of whom are leading soloists. Hailed as “an extraordinarily versatile orchestra” by The Los Angeles Times, the musicians provide an extensive repertoire that includes original compositions by Marsalis, Ted Nash and other orchestra member. Not to mention they have masterworks of Ellington, Mingus, Coltrane and other great jazz composers as part of their set list. Internally acclaimed with sold-out performances worldwide, this orchestra is a smooth soul playing train that gains momentous success with every concert performed.

Still unsure? Here is the orchestra performing “Inner Urge” in San Javier, Spain, in 2011 at the International Jazz Festival. Have a listen:

Experience what The Daily Telegraph in the U.K. says is “the finest big band in the world today!” Get your tickets while they’re still hot! CLICK HERE for more information about the show.
