Flatbush: Celebrate “The First Lady of Song”

Ella Fitzgerald was the most popular female jazz singer in our country for more than half a century. She could croon sultry ballads and sweet jazz hits and imitate every instrument in an orchestra.

Featuring the Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra, regional musicians and vocalist Deloris King Williams the arrangements that are to be performed are to be a mix of traditional and contemporary jazz pieces.
