Reflections in Music continues our exploration of classical music with this program devoted to music by the great American composer, pianist, and bandleader Duke Ellington, who together with his creative partner Billy Strayhorn created one of the most impressive bodies of work of any composer of the 20th century. 

The first half of the program will focus on Ellington’s concert music and sacred music, then in the second part of the program we’ll move the chairs to the side and have a dance party!

The bandleader for this program is legendary trombonist Art Baron, who played in the Ellington Band under Duke himself (and later toured and recorded with such artists as Stevie Wonder, B.B.King, James Taylor, etc.)

Bring your dancing shoes!
