David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center, Frieda and Roy Furman Stage
An all-star ensemble of Essentially Ellington alumni plays the music of Duke Ellington and celebrates the 18th anniversary of the annual Jazz at Lincoln Center (JALC) 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 JALC. Alumni of the Essentially Ellington (High School Jazz Band Program) include Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra bassist Carlos Henriquez, saxophonist Erika von Kleist, and bassist David Wong. Join us for this special performance that leads up to the final concert of the annual competition and festival at Frederick P. Rose Hall on May 12, 2013. Find out more at jalc.org/ee.
