The Boulder Chorale presents Duke Ellington's 'Sacred Concerts' on May 19th and 20th at First United Methodist Church in Boulder. In his three Sacred Concerts, which he considered "the most important thing I have ever done," Duke Ellington brought his Cotton Club show to the church. These performances will showcase a new arrangement for jazz sextet and include guest vocalist and Denver native, Joslyn Ford-Keel and tap dancer of stage and screen, Dr. David Sharp. Also joining the Boulder Chorale are: Adam Waite, piano; Ron Bland, bass; Todd Reid, drums; Al Hood, trumpet/flugelhorn; Wil Swindler, alto saxophone; and Heath Walton, tenor saxophone.
