Arguably one of the greatest bands of all time, Earth, Wind, & Fire recently visited the Duke Ellington School of the Arts as part of the Performance Series of Legends. The program has also featured the brilliance of comedian David Chapelle, opera singer Denyce Graves and musician Stevie Wonder.
“These artists’ willingness to give back their time, resources, and inspiration through this Performance Series provides Duke Ellington students valuable exposure and customized artistic direction. Their contributions have provided a source of revenue that allows us to continue our important mission of providing excellence in arts education to deserving students who wouldn’t otherwise have this opportunity”, states Rory Pullens, Head of School and CEO of the Duke Ellington School of the Arts.
