A thrilling experience of music. The Concert Hall upgraded my seat to the orchestra floor and I was 7 rows from the stage! Wonderful music. The first part was music written by an amazing composer that blended Ellington's jazz with Arabic music....continued

The Duke Ellington Orchestra was fabulous; but was not featured in this concert. The Orchestra was relegated to being "backup". A big waste of their talent. Shame on the sponsors of this program for advertising it as Duke's Orchestra being...continued

A very unusual show of 20th century American music, enjoyable and a great change of pace. If you think the symphony is always Mozart 41, Beethoven 5, or Dvorak 9, you will not like this. If you are ready to hear full orchestra arrangements, with...continued

Great seats and easy pick up at will call.

Goldstar seats were...continued

A most delightful experience. The musicians were amazing, it was as though we stepped back in time listening to the "Duke" himself. The entire evening was so captivating we didn't want it to end.

Duke Ellington Orchestra was great. I did not realize that there would be a different group to start the concert so not as much Duke Ellington music as I had hoped for

I was under the assumption that the whole program was the Duke Ellington Orchestra (based on what information was provided on Goldstar). I was EXTREMELY disappointed in the first half of the program which was TERRIBLE and had nothing to do with...continued
