In the Concert Hall

Sydney Symphony Orchestra

Classical Music

Experience this extraordinary a tour de force which combines New Orleans jazz, gospel, spirituals, African chant, symphonic modernism, ragtime, blues, folk song and Latin dances with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra.

Wynton Marsalis’ Epic All Rise

The genius of Wynton Marsalis brings together two orchestras and a choir to create the kaleidoscopic jazz symphony, All Rise. With the talented musicians of Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Sydney Symphony Orchestra and Sydney Philharmonia Choirs, the number of musicians on stage will be a visual spectacle – but wait until you hear them.

Over twelve epic movements of All Rise, Marsalis discovers fresh creative freedom within the classical form. It’s a tour de force that combines New Orleans jazz, gospel, spirituals, African chant, symphonic modernism, ragtime, blues, folk song and Latin dances. 

Joyous and energetic, tantalising and transcendent – All Rise pulses with grandeur, complexity and contrasts, much like its great inspiration, multicultural America.
