Duke Ellington is revered around the country and the world as an accomplished musician whose career spanned over five decades.  Considered one of the most influential figures in American music, to this day his legacy lives on across generations.  Performance halls around the country pay tribute to his life on or around his birthday in April.

SORG introduced Duke Ellington’s music through the Blue Wisp Big Band at the Sorg Opera House last April. We once again pay tribute to this iconic musician through the famed Cincinnati Blue Wisp Big Band for the 2nd year - Click here for tickets
