Trumpeter Wynton Marsalis


Special guest Wynton Marsalis opens the new season of Song Travels at 5:00 p.m. Saturday, January 12th.

Classical trumpeter and composer Wynton Marsalis hails from one of New Orleans' most distinguished jazz families. He became the youngest musician admitted to the Berkshire Music Center, and has continued the Marsalis dynasty with multiple Grammy Awards, a Pulitzer Prize, and the National Medal of Arts. This legendary artist shares his musings and a few of his favorite things -- including the recently-discovered recording of Louis Armstrong's last known performance.
