A jazz and big band sensation! The fabulous Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Orchestra return to Deal, directed by the inimitable Pete Long, in a programme that celebrates the work of the late, great Duke Ellington.
Ellington’s masterly suite Such Sweet Thunder is inspired by the characters from Shakespeare’s plays, while Pete Long’s own version of Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake is inspired by the music of Ellington. This Swan Lake was commissioned by Deal Music & Arts and, after waiting two long years, finally gets its world premiere tonight.
With classics like Sonnet to Caesar, The Star-Crossed Lovers, Swans of Paradise, and Sugar Hill, this promises to be a night to remember!
And we are proud to present our very own NYJO Academy South-East as tonight’s warm up act!
