The Spark with Tift Merritt: Wynton Marsalis


Join us for the third episode of The Spark with Tift Merritt, featuring Wynton Marsalis, joined by Carlos Henriquez. In this new series, Grammy–nominated singer/songwriter and UNC alumna Tift Merritt returns to Carolina Performing Arts to take us behind the scenes in artist-to-artist video interviews that delve deep into the creative process.

On November 19, Tift will sit down with Wynton Marsalis, internationally acclaimed musician, composer, and managing and artistic director of Jazz at Lincoln Center, and Carlos Henriquez, bassist for the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra (JLCO) and lecturer at the Northwestern University School of Music. Marsalis and the JLCO are no strangers to Chapel Hill. In the 06/07 season—CPA’s second season ever—they began a long tradition of performing on our stage. In this interview, Merritt will take us “backstage” with Marsalis and Henriquez for a candid conversation about their work, their lives, and turning points in their work as artists, with Jazz at Lincoln Center and beyond.
