Duke Ellington Concert

Cade Museum for Creativity & Invention | Gainesville, FL

1,000 Voices of Florida presents the third Annual Duke Ellington Concert on the lawn of the Cade Museum.
Legendary bandleader Duke Ellington ascended the ranks of American jazz by reinventing the big-band sound. From Harlem’s Cotton Club to venues around the world, Ellington’s orchestra delighted millions with gems like "It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing)" and “Prelude to a Kiss,” and even spiritual music, too. Ellington defied genre and tradition, uniting music lovers of all lifestyles and backgrounds.
Ellington’s jubilant sound can be experienced once again when 1000 Voices of North Central Florida present their third annual concert of his music on the Cade Museum lawn starting at 4 p.m. on Sunday, April 24.
The 1000 Voices concert celebrates what would be Ellington’s 123rd birthday with brassy horns, tickled ivories and toe-tapping beats spilling out of the Cade’s porch. Dancers add to the lively mix.
Admission to the concert will be free, plus admission to the Cade Museum will also be free that day.
