The best and most convenient place to eat before the concert is at Jardiniere. Also, you can stop for a drink afterwards.

Description

The music of Duke Ellington defies any strict categorization. Call it Jazz, call it Swing, call it Big Band. But whatever you call it, call it the music that will make you want to dance in the aisles of Davies Symphony Hall! Don’t you dare miss The Duke Ellington Orchestra in a toe-tappin’, finger-snappin’ concert of music from the great Ellington songbook, including holiday hits and some of his best loved tunes. One happenin’ night only!
