Jazz superstar vocalist Patti Austin and a six-piece band showcase selections from her forthcoming recording, which will feature her distinct interpretation of the music of Duke Ellington. Just a few months after performing selections from her recording Avant Gershwin (Dig) at sold-out Kennedy Center New Year's Eve performances in 2007, Austin won her first Grammy for Best Jazz Vocal Album of the Year for the Gershwin recording. Ring in the New Year with what will undoubtedly be one of the most-talked-about concerts of the season. After the performance, enjoy festive dancing, a countdown to 2012, and a balloon drop in the Grand Foyer, free with your concert ticket.
