Balder Hall (Aleksanterinkatu 12, 00170 Helsinki)
On the 27th of April, Reunion Big Band dives into the golden era of swing music and especially the jazz legend Duke Ellington.
Ellington is one of jazz music's all-time greats, known for his hits like Satin Doll, It don’t mean a thing and Take the A Train. However, during his 50-year-long career, Ellington composed thousands of scores. This concert gives a glimpse of his virtuosity in mastering different styles and moods, with songs like Half The Fun and KoKo.
If your seat doesn't hold you, you're welcome to take a spin on our dance floor. Let's swing it!
