Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn's Such Sweet Thunder

Sat, 1 Nov 2014 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Featuring JMU's Jazz Ensemble and Theatre Students

In honor of Shakespeare’s 450th anniversary, the JMU Jazz Studies program and the School of Theatre and Dance come together for a production of Duke Ellington’s masterful jazz suite Such Sweet Thunder. Written in 1957 by Duke Ellington and his longtime collaborator Billy Strayhorn, this inspired, 12-part tribute to the Bard takes it name from a line in A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
