Blues In Orbit: Duke Ellington/Apollo 11 Tribute Concert

Tuesday, April 9, 2019

Presented in partnership with NEWorks Productions. Registration required. Call or go online to reserve your seat!

Join us as we mark the 50th anniversary of the Apollo lunar landing with a community concert featuring stellar songs from Duke Ellington's "Blues in Orbit" recording project — released 60 years ago — along with classic Ellington tunes performed by the United States Army Blues. Other highlights of the evening will be performances by emerging regional student artists and the world premiere of "ONE GIANT LEAP," a NEWorks commissioned work celebrating the hidden figures of the Apollo era, composed by celebrated jazz musician/composer Allyn Johnson, Director of Jazz Studies, University of the District of Columbia, and long-term resident of Prince George's County.
