Duke the Halls with Duke Ellington School’s soulful Christmas concert
All day Saturday, the Duke Ellington School will also be hosting the Holiday Gift and Bazaar Show, a market full of jewelry, food, and other Christmas goodies.
Put on by the school’s Home Association, this bazaar is the perfect destination to find some stocking stuffers (or stomach stuffers), and it’s all within a nice walking distance from campus. The bazaar will be open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and admission is free.
Next Thursday and Friday, the Duke Ellington School of the Arts will be throwing a soulful holiday concert. Featuring several of the school’s musical ensembles, the Motown-inspired concert will take place in the school’s Ellington Theatre at 35th and R Street in Burleith. The show starts at 7:30 p.m., and tickets are $10.
It’s time to get in the Christmas spirit, and you really don’t want to miss a chance to see these child prodigies developing across the street. Seriously, you’ll regret it for the rest of your life when you learn that the next Dizzy Gillespie blossomed out of this neighboring musical institution.
