Calvin Jones BIG BAND Jazz Festival

April 29 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Monday, April 29, 2024 • 8:00 p.m.

The BIG BAND sound returns as the powerhouse jazz ensembles from the University of the District of Columbia (directed by Allyn Johnson), Howard University (directed by Fred Irby III), and the University of Maryland (directed by Mark Williams) celebrate Jazz Appreciation Month and Duke Ellington’s birthday. Produced by the Jazz Studies Program and the Felix E. Grant Jazz Archives, the festival began in 1987 as part of a city-wide tribute to Duke Ellington, and it remains one of the most anticipated events on Washington, DC’s jazz calendar.

Tickets are $20 (general admission), $15 (seniors), and $10 (students) and can be purchased in advance at the UDC Music Program, Performing Arts-Bldg. 46-West or online at InstantSeats.com. Info: (202) 274-5803 * [email protected] * www.bigbandjazzfest.org
