Ellington Masterpieces

Rose Theater • 8:00PM

Fri, Jun 12 • Sat, Jun 13

The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis closes the concert season with an audience favorite: an all-Ellington evening of musical masterpieces. Over the course of six decades, Duke Ellington wrote well over 1,000 compositions, some of the richest and most enduring music of the past century. This music is a premier showcase of a big band’s range, nuance, and cohesion, and nobody plays it quite like the JLCO.
