The Stissing Center is excited to announce that Wynton Marsalis is heading to Pine Plains. Join us on Saturday, September 7th as Mr. Marsalis and his quartet headline our inaugural Benefit Concert. Proceeds from this fundraiser will support The Stissing Center’s operational expenses and help fund the continued renovation of our 104-year-old building. We are thrilled to announce that Wynton is donating his performance in support of The Stissing Center.
Tickets for this benefit concert are $250 apiece. Since there are no bad seats in the house, all tickets are general admission. Tickets are first come, first served, and are very limited, so we are initially limiting tickets to two tickets per person.
Wynton Marsalis is an internationally acclaimed musician, composer and bandleader, an educator and a leading advocate of American culture. He has created and performed an expansive range of music from quartets to big bands, chamber music ensembles to symphony orchestras, and tap dance to ballet, expanding the vocabulary for jazz and classical music with a vital body of work that places him among the world’s finest musicians and composers.
Always swinging, Marsalis blows his trumpet with a clear tone, a depth of emotion and a unique, virtuosic style derived from an encyclopedic range of trumpet techniques. When you hear Marsalis play, you’re hearing life being played out through music.
