Birmingham Conservatoire Ellington Orchestra

We warmly welcome you to the launch of Birmingham Conservatoire’s Ellington Orchestra.

The Orchestra has been established to form an integral part of the Conservatoire's Jazz Department and to be a regular fixture in the Eastside Jazz Club of the new Conservatoire building, opening September 2017.

The first set will include Ellington classics such as Harlem Air Shaft, Birmingham Breakdown, Ko-Ko and Happy Go Lucky Local while the second set will be a complete performance of The Far East Suite, one of his most famous late works collaboratively written with Billy Strayhorn.

Our newly-formed Ellington Orchestra promise an intense Big Band experience.
