Win tickets to Wynton Marsalis and the Live at Lincoln Center Orchestra

Are you ready for an evening with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis? Here’s your chance to win a pair of tickets to the Thursday, Sept. 15, concert at Saroyan Theatre.

The special event is sponsored by the Fresno Philharmonic as a kickoff to its 2022-23 season. (The Fresno orchestra is not performing.) Marsalis conducts this notable ensemble.

The contest is open to members, donors and individual sponsors of The Munro Review. I’m giving away two pairs of tickets.

Tax-deductible memberships start at $5 a month, and you can make a one-time donation of as little as $3. (Paid memberships help keep the site running, and paid members get special members-only benefits. Please consider a paid membership in support of independent, local arts journalism.) A free membership option is available.

For details on how to join, go to the Membership and Sponsorship page. No purchase, donation or membership is necessary to enter the ticket giveaway.

To enter the giveaway, leave a reply on this post telling us why you’re a fan of Wynton Marsalis. (Or just say you’d like the tickets.) Leave your entry in the comment field below. Deadline to enter is 8 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 14. The winner will be picked at random and notified by email.

    Hi Don, We are huge jazz fans. We saw Diana Krall in Hanford several years ago. When I was a teen growing up in the SF area, I used to attend concerts at The Great American Music Hall. We listen to jazz all the time. On Alexa, Pandora, XM, etc. We love all forms of jazz and seeing Wynton Marsalis in person would be a bucket list item! What a great opportunity.

    Wynton always performs with exemplary care – pure excellence.
    Would be privileged to see him again!

    Dear Donald,
    Wynton Marsalis is the epitome of American jazz music of our time.
    It would be a total pleasure to go to this concert.
    Thanks for doing this drawing.

  • Hello Donald,
    I saw Wynton Marsalis more than 25 years ago in the amphitheater near the Fresno State Music Building. It would be a pleasure to hear him again this week at the Saroyan.

    I would love to treat my musician husband (who is now in hospice for Parkinson’s Disease) to the concert! He was a high school; music director for 30 years and introduced his students to many artists, including Wynton and Brandon Marsalis…
