Wynton Marsalis Named Director of Jazz Studies at Juilliard

Jazz at Lincoln Center will give Juilliard increased access to its programs and concerts

Wynton Marsalis

Wynton Marsalis will become Director of Jazz Studies at Juilliard beginning July 1, 2014, it was announced by the Juilliard School and Jazz at Lincoln Center today. Marsalis, Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Managing & Artistic Director (and a Juilliard alumnus), will oversee the school’s spring 2014 auditions and admissions cycle to select the entering class for fall 2014. He will also plan the program’s growth.

In addition, according to a press release, the two organizations “announced a substantial new initiative to give Juilliard Jazz students increased access to Jazz at Lincoln Center’s education programs, concert opportunities and audience development projects that will augment their academic work and career … JALC will provide [students with] additional opportunities to perform and develop practical insights into managing their own careers by participating in JALC’s innovative social media, digital marketing, and webcasting initiatives.”

This new collaboration, the press release added, “revitalizes the relationship between the two organizations, which began when jazz education was introduced at Juilliard with the first class of jazz instrumentalists arriving in September 2001.”
