The shows, dubbed "The Crosby, Stills & Nash Songbook," are scheduled for May 1 and May 3 at Lincoln Center's Rose Theater and will feature the folk-rock trio performing with accompaniment from Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra.
The concerts will include renditions of many of CSN's most memorable tunes arranged especially for the events by Marsalis and members of the orchestra.
"Wynton Marsalis, who has become America's musical hero and ambassador to the world in the tradition of the great Louis Armstrong, has offered us the chance to make music with the Jazz at the Lincoln Center Orchestra," says David Crosby in a statement. "We are excited and fascinated with this merging of musical streams and looking forward to a night to remember."
The first performance will serve as the 2013 installment of Jazz at Lincoln Center's annual Gala Concert. The private benefit event will raise money for the arts organization, and will include a dinner that will follow CSN's performance. Tickets for the gala begin at $1,500.
The May 3 concert will be a public event; tickets will be made available initially to Jazz at Lincoln Center members and subscribers with access to a MasterCard beginning February 4. Tickets will go on sale to the general public a week later via JALC.org or at the Jazz at Lincoln Center box office.
