Today the schedule of upcoming events from Jazz at Lincoln Center was announced, sparking much excitement from fans of the jazz entertainment world.

This season, the series will not only feature great jazz performances, but will also offer educational opportunities and broadcasts as well. The most famous of the educational opportunities is most likely WeBop, a session where parents and children can gather and experience different jazz instruments and artists. The interesting aspect of this entertainment is that guests are invited to take part in the action!

The 2010-2011 season will focus on different types of jazz from all around the world, including traditional New Orleans jazz and Afro beat jazz. Main headliners of the season are well known artists Chick Corea and Chucho Valdes.
