The Coffee Series: Lush Life, Jacksonville Symphony

January 13 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Lush Life: The Music and Story of Duke Ellington & Billy Strayhorn. Both legendary songwriters, performers and arrangers, Ellington and Strayhorn collaborated on some of the most beloved jazz standards of all time, including “Take The A Train,” “Satin Doll,” and the timeless Ellington-Strayhorn adaptation of Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite. Along with a featured guest vocalist, this orchestra-centered concert showcases symphonic arrangements by Jeff Tyzik on a program combining the hits of Ellington with the elegant sophistication of Strayhorn.

Lush Life is a co-production of Schirmer Theatrical, LLC and Greenberg Artists. Production comes with all orchestral arrangements, a vocal soloist and optional black and white imagery showcasing performances by both artists.
