The Music of Ellington and Ella

One evening that celebrates two legends: Duke Ellington and Ella Fitzgerald.

In the first half of the concert, you’ll be treated to those unforgettable Ellington hits including Caravan, Mood Indigo and, of course, Take the A Train, performed by the legendary Duke Ellington Orchestra. After intermission, Grammy® Award-winning vocalist Patti Austin joins this swinging Orchestra, scatting and singing her way through a tribute to that First Lady of Song, Ella Fitzgerald. It’s a one-of- a-kind salute to these two giants of jazz, and you’re invited to the party!
