Williams Center for the Arts Presents Jazz Reach / Ellington Saturday Nov 4th 2pm

JazzReach / Ellington!

Saturday / November 4, 2017 / 2 p.m.

An iconoclastic genius and prolific composer, Duke Ellington transcended boundaries to fill the world with a treasure trove of music. In a career spanning 50 years, Ellington wrote more than 3,000 songs, played more than 20,000 performances, and gave American music its own sound for the first time. JazzReach’s ELLINGTON!—an engaging, interactive, multimedia program designed especially for young audiences—illuminates the Duke’s musical achievements, from hit songs to blues riffs to extended suites and scores for stage and screen. The critically acclaimed Metta Quintet performs live for this inspirational story of a remarkable man, musician, and bandleader. 

Without A Net: The Digital Divide In America - Official Trailer

The first trailer has been released for Without a Net: The Digital Divide in America. The film, narrated by Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx and directed by Academy Award nominee Rory Kennedy, is an official selection of the New York Film Festival and will premiere on September 26 on National Geographic.

American students in economically deprived schools are often ill-prepared for the global, digital economy. This documentary explores how fully equipping all students for the digital world can improve parity in educational and, later, economic opportunity.

Without a Net: The Digital Divide in America debuts on National Geographic on September 26th at 10pm ET.
