Jazz at Lincoln Center is a world-renowned cultural institution that has long mesmerized audiences with its sheer mastery over the art of jazz and brilliant lyrical ideas. Driven by the same pursuit of excellence and commitment to the arts, Grand Seiko is proud to partner with Jazz at Lincoln Center as the Official Timekeeper and sponsor of the 2020-2021 and 2021-2022 concert seasons.
Wynton Marsalis, Jazz at Lincoln Center Managing and Artistic Director, spoke of the partnership:
I am grateful to Grand Seiko for its commitment to the arts and its embrace of a unifying art form like jazz. The pandemic has given us the opportunity to understand just how interconnected the world is and we can’t wait to get started working collaboratively and creatively on this new partnership. Jazz music is all about the mastery of time and executing lyrical ideas with precision, charisma, and soul.
Brice Le Troadec, President of Grand Seiko Corporation of America:
Jazz at Lincoln Center is one of New York City’s great establishments. It educates, promotes and performs the art of music not only for the residents of this great city but for the global community at large. We are incredibly proud to partner with this renowned cultural institution and to do our part in helping to nurture and support the arts during these challenging times.
Since March 2020, Jazz at Lincoln Center’s performance, education, and advocacy resources have been shared mostly for free with the organization’s growing global community of over two million people to share in turn with their friends, family, fans, supporters, companies, and constituencies. Although The House of Swing may still be dark temporarily, Jazz at Lincoln Center is providing resources for cultural nourishment and comfort in these uncertain times. With Grand Seiko’s support – from the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis concert, Coltrane: A Love Supreme kicking off June 10, to contributions towards the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra’s upcoming US tour – Jazz at Lincoln Center is able to continue to bring both live and virtual concert experiences directly to fans and supporters.
