On February 27, 2016, The Lakeside Singers will perform music from Duke Ellington’s Three Sacred Concerts with The Chicago Jazz Orchestra at the Wentz Concert Hall in Naperville!!

In the last decade of his life, Duke Ellington wrote three Sacred Concerts: The First Concert of Sacred Music in 1965, the second in 1968 and the third in 1973. Ellington called these concerts "the most important thing I have ever done". Critic Richard S. Ginell has stated that the music "taps into Ellington's roots in showbiz and African-American culture as well as his evidently deep religious faith, throwing it all together in the spirit of universality and sealing everything with the stamps of his musical signatures".

The Lakeside Singers are thrilled to be performing selections from these concerts with The Chicago Jazz Orchestra. Under the leadership of conductor and artistic director Jeff Lindberg, the CJO has garnered national and international recognition for presenting performances of classic American jazz orchestra repertoire. The music from the three Sacred Concerts is rarely performed as a single presentation, which makes this exciting night with The Chicago Jazz Orchestra an event not to be missed.

The concert will take place at The Wentz Concert Hall in Naperville on February 27, 2016. Tickets will be available through the Box Office at the Wentz Concert Hall. Prices and further information to be posted soon.
