Following up the success of the Ellington Meeting 2021, DESS and DESScafé have decided to organise another virtual conference for Duke Ellington aficionados and experts next year.

It will take place during the last week of April. Further details will be announced later.

Those interested in making a presentation at the meeting should submit a short  summary of what they would like to talk about. The presentations should fit into one of the following themes:

– Ellington compositions and interpretations

– Ellington band members and soloists

– Ellington’s tours and apperances

Submissions should be sent to before the end of February 2022.

A Program Committee is currently being organised and it will select the presentations before the end of February 2022.

Registration will open 1 March 2022.

There is a page with information about the event on the website. It will be updated regularily.
