At the age of 17, he was accepted into The Juilliard School in New York City and soon thereafter was discovered by Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers.

Wynton made his recording debut as a leader in 1982 and has since recorded more than 60 jazz and classical recordings, garnering him nine GRAMMY® Awards. In 1983, he became the first and only artist to win both classical and jazz GRAMMY’s® in the same year.

In 1997, he became the first jazz artist to be awarded the prestigious Pulitzer Prize in music for his oratorio, Blood on the Fields. In 1999, he premiered a specially commissioned work All Rise, performed by the New York Philharmonic, Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra and the Morgan State University Choir. In April 2008, Wynton composed a full mass in celebration of the 200th Anniversary of the Harlem’s Abyssinian Baptist Church.

An internationally respected teacher and spokesman for music education, Wynton conducts workshops all over the world. He created and hosts the popular Jazz for Young People ® concerts, Marsalis on Music DVD series and was honored with a Peabody Award for the radio series Making the Music. He has also written five books including his most recent release Moving to Higher Ground: How Jazz Can Change Your Life.

Mr. Marsalis is the Artistic Director of Jazz at Lincoln Center and helped lead the effort to construct its current home – Frederick P. Rose Hall – the first education, performance, and broadcast facility devoted to jazz.
