Chances are good if your 2nd Grader learned about Bessie Smith, Coleman Hawkins and Ella Fitzgerald, they learned it from the Symphonic Jazz Orchestra. It’s time to salute this wonderful Culver City institution by showing your support. An evening celebration will feature Grammy-nominated jazz vocalist Jane Monheit and the 67-member Symphonic Jazz Orchestra, saluting the Ella Fitzgerald Centennial with original arrangements by Nelson Riddle. Also on the concert are works by George Duke, Alan Chan and Gordon Goodwin, conducted by music director Mitch Glickman.
Tickets are $35-$55. There are a limited number of VIP tickets for $100 that include a pre-concert reception at 6 pm with Jane Monheit, followed by preferred seats at the 7 pm concert. Photo-ops with Jane will be available!
