DESCRIPTION Through an interactive performance by the Duke Ellington orchestra, the audience will go on Duke’s journey from Washington, D.C. to New York City, where he digs deep into this music called jazz as it’s being birthed from the belly of New Orleans. The Duke Ellington Orchestra will illustrate how Duke’s discovery of the blues and the development of his own innovative ideas created a new vernacular that would forever change the musical landscape of jazz. His legacy as a composer, leader and vanguard of American music is celebrated through this hour-long, family event.
