Ellington Lives! Concert Video Goes Live Today

For those folks who either missed the Center’s April 14th International Jazz Day performance at the Spurlock Museum or just want to catch the concert a second time, we have posted the edited recording to the Sousa Archives YouTube channel [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d359Ntku6CQ].  The music is delightful and the conversations with the various student and faculty musicians are wonderfully engaging.  So if you’re looking for a fun musical distraction over the Memorial Day weekend, why don’t you sit back and enjoy this concert and discover the beautiful charm of Duke Ellington and his music performed by our community’s talented local musicians.
