Way back in June, StLJN told readers about a Pollstar listing showing a performance by Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra in March 2010 at the Sheldon Concert Hall. Today, the Sheldon issued a press release announcing that Marsalis and the JaLCO (pictured) would indeed be coming to St. Louis next year on Saturday, March 13 to headline the hall's annual benefit gala.
Patron tickets for the event are on sale now, and can be ordered by calling the Sheldon at 314-533-9900. Prices start at $500 and include cocktails, dinner, preferred seating, complimentary valet parking and a tax deduction.
Single tickets will be priced at $75 for orchestra seats and $65 for the balcony, and will go on sale at 10:00 a.m. Saturday, February 13 via Metrotix.
