Classical Jazz

An exciting program that marries a classical masterpiece with two works rooted in the jazz world. Masterful violinist Regina Carter performs Schiff’s Concerto, which pays homage to Aretha Franklin, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, and Sarah Vaughan, who changed our musical landscape. Duke Ellington’s masterpiece is a jazz-fueled walk through Black and African-American history. Finally, Tchaikovsky’s jovial Second Symphony is said to have been his favorite.
