About

In partnership with the Kennedy Center, the Fifth Annual Duke Ellington Jazz Festival's closing night concert, Celebrating a Jazz Master: Ellis Marsalis, is a rousing tribute to the master jazz pianist, composer, educator, and patriarch of one of New Orleans' most famed musical families. An extremely rare opportunity to see the Marsalis brothers perform with their father, the June 15 concert in the Concert Hall is sure to sell out and features Branford, Wynton, Delfeayo, and Jason Marsalis, with special guests Harry Connick Jr. and Dr. Billy Taylor.
