Eric Conway: Jazz Symposium on the Music of Duke Ellington

Dr. Eric Conway writes:

Hello all,

On Friday, April 12, 2019, Morgan’s Fine and Performing Arts Department hosted a Jazz Symposium on music of Duke Ellington.   The panelists were John Lamkin, Leroy Barton, and Charles Funn.  They shared many profound comments on the significance of Duke Ellington as an innovator in Music History.  All who attended, gained a greater appreciation of the music of Duke Ellington.  

This symposium was a great precursor to our Cyrus Chestnut Piano Recital featuring music of Duke Ellington on Sunday, April 14, 2019 at 4 PM at the Murphy Fine Arts Center. 

Please see below a link to the entire symposium.  If you have any interests in Duke Ellington, I invite you to review the symposium.
