The mission of Jazz at Lincoln Center is to entertain, enrich and expand a global community for Jazz through performance, education and advocacy. We believe Jazz is a metaphor for Democracy. Because jazz is improvisational, it celebrates personal freedom and encourages individual expression. Because jazz is swinging, it dedicates that freedom to finding and maintaining common ground with others. Because jazz is rooted in the blues, it inspires us to face adversity with persistent optimism.
About Rose Theater
Gorgeous both sonically and visually, Rose Theater utilizes ambitious elements such as a retractable concert shell ceiling and a sophisticated acoustical curtain and banner system to help tailor the sound quality of the hall for individual performances. Able to accommodate live performances such as jazz concerts, opera, theater, symphonies and dance, Rose Theater is ideal for a virtually endless variety of events, from performances to presentations, from film screenings to award ceremonies. It was designed with the audience in mind—with three tiers, the furthest seat is no more than 90 feet from the stage. Each level features beautiful wood veneer boxes for seating that offers a special experience. The theater is topped by attractive lit diamonds with adjustable colors, which can be used to create a specific atmosphere or ambience. It can accommodate up to 1233 people.
