Duke Ellington: Big Band Instrument Making, 10:00am

All ages

10am - 4:45pm
Edward “Duke” Ellington was not only a talented jazz performer, but also a composer and the conductor of his own Big Band. Many of the famous pieces of jazz we know today – known as ‘standards’ – were written by Duke for his band, and for the specific talents of his musicians. Inspired by the individual style of these talented performers, build your own musical instruments similar to the ones you hear in Duke Ellington’s music.
This program is part of our "Jazzed!: The Changing Beat of 125th Street" exhibit and takes place on the lower level.
