Concerts in Rose Theater

Four special weekday performances of our popular Jazz for Young People Concerts are offered each year specifically for school groups in Rose Theater at Fredrick P. Rose Hall, home of Jazz at Lincoln Center.  Hosted by Wynton Marsalis or by special guests, these hour-long narrated concerts use warmth and humor to introduce key musical concepts and other jazz fundamentals.  This concert series is designed for grades 2 and up.
