Looking for an intimate evening of jazz but don’t want to head all the way to New York City? Jazz fans will enjoy a fresh take on the genius of composer, arranger, bandleader and pianist Duke Ellington when New Duke offers a new take on this influential figures brilliant musical works.

It is our story in sound. The evolution of American popular music may be our greatest gift to the world. Blues, rock, jazz, country, soul, hip-hop and beyond have been a soundtrack of the American experience. This series explores American music through concerts and listening sessions with special guest artists, along with workshops and special presentations in public schools.

Our culture is a musical one and valuing that collective story is essential to our identity as a nation – revealing insights of who we are. The American Music Series celebrates the rich musical history of our past while sharing insight on the music of tomorrow. Quick Center patrons are offered a more in-depth experience as we invite you to listen, learn and share in our cultural heritage. It is a story and a revolution we can dance to.
