St John's ARC
Tickets: £15 online or cash/card/contactless on the door
Harmony In Harlem return to St John's Arts & Recreation Centre, Harlow, for our secondperformance of The Queen's Suite, alongside our regular repertoire of Ellington from the 1930s through to the 1950s. These six descriptive pieces of The Queen's Suite were inspired by Duke Ellington's meeting Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth in Leeds in 1958, after which he composed and recording the suite, having only a single pressing made and sent to Buckingham Palace with no commercial release until after his death - a remarkably romantic gesture.
