Duke Ellington Orchestra

Saturday, May 18, 2013 8:00p

Carl St.Clair, conductor
Duke Ellington Orchestra
Daniel Schnyder, composer and saxophone
David Taylor, trombone
Kenny Drew Jr., piano

A celebration of American composers is incomplete without mention of Duke Ellington, whose works inspired many composers and musicians of the 20th and 21st centuries. This year, we aren’t just mentioning him; we are presenting the ensemble that carries his name and has been playing together in one form or another for eight decades.
