Duke Ellington called his music not jazz, but “American Music,” and praised musical artists who impressed him as “beyond category.” Whether writing for the dance club or the concert hall, Ellington himself transcended these categories. You’ll hear the sublime results as the Henry Mancini Institute Orchestra revisits three of Ellington’s orchestral jewels, Three Black Kings, Harlem, and The River. Scott Flavin, director. Tickets are $20 and $15 for seniors.
