Join us for an evening where you’ll hear a different take on Duke Ellington’s music. Erik Jekabson’s critically acclaimed String-tet is joined by pianist Adam Shulman as they play brand new arrangements of familiar and some not-so-familiar Ellington compositions. The combination of the String-tets’ violin, viola, trumpet, sax, bass, drums and vibes with Adams creative and masterful piano playing shouldn’t be missed.
