This season, our Jazz for Young People series begins with the greatest of all jazz composers: Duke Ellington. Through interactive performances and lessons, our young audience will go on Duke’s journey from Washington, D.C. to New York City, where he digs deep into this music called jazz as it’s being birthed from the belly of New Orleans.
