World-renowned tenor saxophonist Mark Lockheart and University Big Band director Jonathan Silk bring together the Big Band and University’s New Music Ensemble for a concert that explores the music of Duke Ellington and music from Mark’s own extensive catalogue. The New Music Ensemble will be exploring Mark’s research and performance work on the music of Duke Ellington, re-arranged for this compelling jazz-orchestral crossover group. The Big Band also performs a set of Mark’s big band charts, originally written for the German NDR big band.
