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, 2019 by buying tickets to the Jazz in the Garden fundraiser on April 27 from 4:00-6:30 pm. Tickets available at Eventbrite. This beautiful outdoor event, at the home of Adrienne Kelly – Lumpkin and Kelly Lumpkin (4205 City of Oaks Wynd, Raleigh), 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, 2019. 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 112 bands.

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

The rain date will be May 4, noon – 2:00 pm.
