April 28, 5 – 7
Support the award winning Triangle Youth Jazz Ensemble as they prepare to go to the finals in the Jazz at Lincoln Center Essentially Ellington High School Competition and Festival in May, 2018. This beautiful evening at the home of Meredith Nelson and Keith Donahue will include refreshments and incredible big band jazz.

The Essentially Ellington festival is described as one of the most innovative jazz education events in the world – at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s home, Frederick P. Rose Hall, on May 9 – 11, 2018. The Triangle Youth Jazz Ensemble was selected through a rigorous screening process on the basis of their audition recording and is one of only fifteen ensembles nationwide chosen out of a field of 109 bands.

Help these young musicians focus on their performance rather than the cost of the trip. Due to the generosity of our hosts, your entire ticket or donation will go toward the trip expenses to New York for our young musicians and is a charitable gift. Buy tickets here
