Music by Ellington and other African American composers, along with Very Young Composers of the New York Philharmonic. Explore the lineage of African American composers, from Duke Ellington to younger composers active today.

This season, the Young People’s Concerts pay tribute to those who have shaped our musical world, from Bernstein to Ellington to Shostakovich. Along the way, we will see how Mozart shaped Tchaikovsky’s work a century later. Music inspires music from generation to generation. Inspire your young listeners with four unforgettable multimedia concerts.
