The Perth International Arts Festival have been able to release some extra tickets in the choir stalls which are now on sale. Please note that seating in the choir stalls is unreserved. The choir stalls are the seats behind the Perth Concert Hall stage. This means you will be sitting behind the performers but will clearly see the Conductor and Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra from a new angle. Choir stall tickets are an affordable way to experience this event, so don't miss out on your bird's eye view.

A rare audience with a jazz icon.

Join us for a journey through jazz history, as virtuoso trumpeter, composer and bandleader, Wynton Marsalis, brings his renowned Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra to the Festival. This big band features some of the top musicians from the American jazz scene and their expert take on jazz classics has filled concert halls around the world.

Marsalis and his band share the stage with our own West Australian Symphony Orchestra as they perform Marsalis’ homage to the evolution of swing.

Marsalis’ third symphonic composition, Swing Symphony has been performed with the world’s great orchestras. Now the West Australian Symphony Orchestra is added to this list, joining Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra for one huge musical celebration.

From ragtime and mambo to bebop and African-American church music, this is virtuosic jazz on a grand scale.
