Happy Birthday To The Duke, The Harlem Man And Legend Duke Ellington

April 14, 2021

Duke Ellington is turning 122 this year, and as is tradition here at DECFA, we’re going to celebrate in style!

Last year, we had to skip our annual concert at Duke Ellington’s Statue in Harlem because of COVID-19.

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.
