Duke Ellington is turning 122 this year, and as is tradition here at DECFA, we’re going to celebrate in style!
At the time, we thought we’d surely be back to celebrate in person by the time this year came around.
But the safety of our artists is too important.
So this year, we’re going to bring the statue to you.
Sunday, April 25th at 4 pm EST we’ll be streaming our previous birthday concert from 2018.
There will be some amazing artists and a reminder of what we have to look forward to as the performance industry begins its recovery.
And there will be a special introduction from our dynamic duo, Mercedes Ellington and Tony Waag!
We can’t wait to see you there!
This event is free and open to the public Sunday, April 25th at 4 pm ET
We’re so grateful for all of you who support the Duke Ellington Center for the Arts.
We need the arts, and we need Duke now more than ever.
So that we can continue to bring events like this into your homes, please consider making a tax-deductible donation.
We love you madly!
