Trumpet virtuoso Wynton Marsalis will lead the 15-piece Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center this summer, when they collaborate for the first time with the Philadelphia Orchestra.

At 7pm on Thursday, August 15, the two ensembles will join forces for a performance of Swing Symphony by Marsalis, the JLCO music director, Grammy-winning trumpeter and Pulitzer Prize composer. Described as “a symphonic meditation on the evolution of swing,” the composition is Marsalis’ third symphonic work.
