Duke Ellington students to perform with Smokey Robinson
Saturday, March 3, 2012 at 7:30 p.m. at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
The Duke Ellington School of the Arts is proud to announce that the legendary Smokey Robinson will be the guest artist at this year’s Performance Series of Legends Benefit Concert on, Saturday, March 3, 2012 at 7:30 p.m. at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
In addition to this concert providing a national platform to promote the value of the arts, DC's own Duke Ellington School of the Arts students will be performing with Smokey.
As a DC public school, much attention will be placed on the value of public education and the importance of using the arts as a vehicle for reaching urban youth who might not otherwise graduate from high school.
Ellington accepts talented youth from every ward in the city without regard to academic grades and has a graduation rate of 98% and a college acceptance rate of 95%.
Tickets are available for purchase for all DCPS employees by contacting the Kennedy Center Box Office at 202-467-4600 or at kennedy-center.org.
