Family Concert: Who is Benny Goodman?

In this hour-long Jazz for Young People concert, families will laugh, learn, and "Sing, Sing, Sing" with the "King of Swing," Benny Goodman. Through live musical performances and entertaining storytelling, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis will share Goodman's joyful music and inspiring story. One of 12 children born on Chicago's west side to poor Jewish immigrants, Benny went on to become the groundbreaking bandleader who formed the first publicly recognized racially integrated jazz bands and brought them to the country's most hallowed venues — a full decade before Jackie Robinson integrated baseball. JLCO saxophonist and clarinetist Victor Goines will host the event and teach audience members how Goodman created his irresistible musical magic. Children will enjoy timeless hits like "Sing, Sing, Sing," "Let's Dance," and "Bugle Call Rag," and adults will learn a thing or two as well.
