The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra Septet's performance of The Sounds of Democracy aims to entertain, inspire, and uplift audiences with the full vigor, vision, and depth of America’s music.

Led by trumpeter/composer Wynton Marsalis and featuring seven of jazz's finest soloists, the concert's unique repertoire celebrates jazz's embodiment of freedom and democracy.

The evening will feature the premiere of The Democracy Suite, a new Marsalis composition written during the ongoing COVID-19 crisis as a response to the political, social, and economic struggles facing our nation. The Democracy Suite is a swinging and stimulating instrumental rumination on the issues that have recently dominated our lives as well as the beauty that could emerge from a collective effort to create a better future.

The post-concert Q&A with Wynton Marsalis will be moderated by Jeffrey L. Hellmer, UT Austin Director of Jazz Studies.

Ticketholders will have viewing access to the concert and discussion recording for 72 hours following the broadcast.
