Classical Jazz

May 12 @ 10:30 am

An exciting program that marries a classical masterpiece with two works rooted in the jazz world. Masterful violinist Regina Carter performs Schiff’s Concerto, which pays homage to Aretha Franklin, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, and Sarah Vaughan, who changed our musical landscape. Duke Ellington’s masterpiece is a jazz-fueled walk through Black and African-American history. Finally, Tchaikovsky’s jovial Second Symphony is said to have been his favorite.

Damon Gupton, conductor
Regina Carter, violin

ELLINGTON  Black, Brown and Beige Suite
SCHIFF  Four Sisters: Concerto for Jazz Violin and Orchestra
