Tanglewood: Wynton Marsalis Quintet With guest Ellis Marsalis Quintet Sept. 1, 7PM

Wynton Marsalis & Ellis Marsalis


Koussevitzky Music Shed - Lenox, MA

Internationally acclaimed trumpeter, composer, bandleader, and educator Wynton Marsalis brings the Wynton Marsalis Quintet to the Koussevitzky Music Shed on Saturday, September 1, at 7 p.m., as part of the closing weekend of the 2018 Tanglewood season. The concert—an incredibly rare small ensemble performance for Mr. Marsalis—will celebrate New Orleans’ Tri-Centennial taking place this year. The concert will also include a very special guest performance by the Ellis Marsalis Quintet, featuring the patriarch of the Marsalis family, New Orleans-based modern jazz pianist Ellis Marsalis. As a leading educator at several universities, Ellis Marsalis has influenced the careers of countless musicians, including his four musician sons: Wynton, Branford, Delfeayo, and Jason.
