JALC's 2021 Spring Virtual Season

Jazz at Lincoln Center has announced a lineup of all-virtual performances and presentations for the spring 2021 season. This season will be focused on the role of jazz in civil rights and social justice for its shortened run. The performances will feature celebrations of Betty Carter, Billie Holiday, Abbey Lincoln, Nina Simone and John Coltrane, as well as collaborations with acclaimed activist Bryan Stevenson.

The first concert, Legacies of Excellence, will premiere on Saturday, February 20, with vocalist Catherine Russell (a wonderful Winter's Eve alum) exploring the music and legacies of jazz icons such as Duke Ellington and Ella Fitzgerald. Following this will be several other shows and then the season will close out on Wednesday, June 16 with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis. This virtual concert, Coltrane: A Love Supreme, will be a big-band rendition of John Coltrane’s seminal record from 1965, along with a number of other Coltrane classics focused on the theme of freedom. Special guest saxophonist and vocalist Camille Thurman joins the JLCO for this rare occasion.

Each of the shows will be available to stream on the Jazz at Lincoln Center website for a few days following its premiere. Tickets are $20 for each concert. Click here for full season access.
