2015 Essentially Ellington Luncheon.
This year i had the privilege to attend The 2015 Essentially Ellington Luncheon to enjoy this year Alumni band who will perform on this special occasion.
The Essentially Ellington High School Jazz Band is one of the most innovative jazz education events in the world. Each year, high school musicians from across North America travel to New York City to spend three days immersed in workshops, jam sessions, rehearsals and performances at the “House of Swing,” Frederick P. Rose Hall, home of Jazz at Lincoln Center.
The festival concludes with a concert and awards ceremony featuring the three top-placing bands and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis.
I was invited by my Friend Rachel Nicks to enjoy a great afternoon of Live Jazz, wine and beverages and a delicious meal with a stunning view over looking Lincoln Center in the Background of the live band playing Jazz.
I met a lot of empowering ladies at the table i was seated at, the lunch was delicious and the mini desserts also, this was so different compare to the events i do attend but it was refreshing to enjoy this lunch and i love live jazz music, i was invited with a plus one so i ask my friend Dara Senders to join me.
I hope you like the pictures and enjoy my day at the 2015 Essentially Ellington Luncheon, Thank again to my friend Rachel for inviting me.
