An all-star ensemble of Essentially Ellington alumni plays the music of Duke Ellington and celebrates the 15th anniversary of the annual jazz education event that invites select high school jazz bands from across North America to spend three days immersed in workshops, rehearsals, jam sessions, and performances at Jazz at Lincoln Center. Alumni of the Essentially Ellington program include Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra bassist Carlos Henriquez, saxophonist Erika von Kleist, and bassist David Wong. Join us for this special precursor performance to the final concert on May 10th.
