Earshot Jazz presents:
Annual Concert of Sacred Music by Duke Ellington


Monday, December 26, 2011
Town Hall Seattle, 7:30 PM


Ellington's wonderful “Sacred Music" is both serious and swinging. It is a reverent and hip body of jazz composition, written late in his career, for jazz big band, vocal and instrumental soloists, gospel choir, and tap dancers.

For the past 22 years Earshot Jazz has presented an annual concert of Ellington's Sacred Music.

Tickets: $15-$34
