Swinging with The Duke

Celebrating Black History month, PASO pays tribute to American jazz composers with a performance of two works by Duke Ellington: the third movement of Three Black Kings which he dedicated to Dr. Martin Luther King, and The Nutcracker Suite, Ellington’s reimagining of the Tchaikovsky Christmas classic. The second half of the show presents a parade of popular American jazz standards complimented by the smooth baritone of acclaimed jazz singer, Caesar, whose style is often likened to that of Nat King Cole. And as is typical of Maestro Buslje’s programming, PASO concerts often feature a surprise work that doesn’t seem to fit the program – until you hear it! For this show, it is the work of Austrian composer, Frederick Gulda, --the Concerto for Cello, a jazzy take on Austrian folk dances.

History

Pan American Symphony Orchestra

(PASO) was founded 30 years ago by dynamic Argentine conductor and musician, Sergio Alessandro Bušlje, with the objective of bringing Latin American symphonic music to Washington, DC concert halls. Maestro Bušlje had studied and performed standard classical repertoire for many years but noticed a gap in the area’s cultural offerings—Latin American music was not fully represented in area performances, even though our Latin American neighbors possess a treasure trove of symphonic works that beg to be played.
