Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis, “All Rise” – Symphony No. 1 (Marsalis)
October 22 @ 7:30 pm
With Orchestra Iowa and 120 voice campus/community choir
“All Rise”, a monumental work by Wynton Marsalis, is the cornerstone of Hancher’s 50th anniversary season. The architecture of the piece is progressive—it represents a series of events and blends the sounds of jazz, blues, classical, and indigenous music from around the world to represent humanity’s enduring ascendance over time. All Rise is a celebration of shared responsibility and resilience. Working together to improve our communities, we can all rise up to meet challenges as we pursue social justice, a shared sense of well-being, and a sustainable future.
The “All Rise” project is more than just a concert, however. Throughout the week prior to the performance, Hancher and the musicians—including Marsalis himself—will present a series of community events to bring everyone together to celebrate and to find common cause.
