The Marylhurst Department of Music ensembles team up to perform selections from the Sacred Concerts by jazz master Duke Ellington.
Ellington wrote three Sacred Concerts: 1965 - A Concert of Sacred Music; 1968 - Second Sacred Concert; 1973 - Third Sacred Concert. Written during the last ten years of his life, Duke Ellington called these concerts "the most important thing I have ever done."
Marylhurst groups performing include:
- Jazz Ensemble
- Marylhurst Chorale
- Choral Union
Our special guests this year:
- Mainstream from Clackamas Community College
General Admission: $10.00
Seniors and Students: $5.00
Purchasing online is recommended, as this concert event will likely sell out. Any remaining tickets will be available at the door.
