Legendary trumpeter Wynton Marsalis brings the Olympians of American jazz to Symphony Hall for a very special concert to celebrate the presence in Birmingham of their sporting counterparts, the US Olympic track and field team.

The evening will also showcase modern compositions and arrangements of JLCO members, whose dynamic works serve as vibrant examples in the continuum of swing.
