Presented with ATX Chamber Music and Jazz

Branford Marsalis continues to thrill audiences around the world while racking up achievements, even after four decades in the international spotlight. From his initial recognition as a young jazz lion, he has expanded his vision as an instrumentalist, composer, and educator, crossing stylistic boundaries while maintaining unwavering creativity. In the process, he has become a symbol of artistic excellence, winning three Grammy Awards, a Tony nomination for his work as a composer on Broadway, a citation by the National Endowment for the Arts as a Jazz Master, and a 2021 Primetime Emmy nomination.

In this special performance, Branford will be joined by students of UT’s premiere jazz ensemble, the Jazz Orchestra, under the direction of Diego Rivera.

During his Austin residency, Branford Marsalis and his Quartet also perform on Saturday, Oct 12 at 6:30pm and 9:00pm at The Mansion, presented by ATX Chamber Music and Jazz


Support for Branford Marsalis’s residency is provided by the College of Fine Arts O’Donnell Visiting Artist Endowment, and Bill and Suzanne Childs

An endless source of inspiration.
