Suite Sounds: The Music of Ellington and Strayhorn

Experience the swingin’ hits of two jazz greats - Driftwood Quintet collaborates with a jazz trio to examine the works of influential composer Duke Ellington and his lesser-known, but equally influential, friend and collaborator Billy Strayhorn. The concert showcases original works by both of these composers and also sheds light on their jazz-fueled reimaginings of two widely popular classical standards: Edvard Grieg’s Peer Gynt Suite (widely known for the movement In the Hall of the Mountain King) and Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite.   

Tickets are $12 in advance/$15 at the door.
