Rocks In My Bed: Duke Ellington

Saturday, April 04, 2015 at Orlando Public Library

Rocks In My Bed: Duke Ellington is a 60 minute recorded music appreciation program that celebrates the life and music of American composer and big band leader Edward Kennedy "Duke" Ellington (1899-1974). Through vinyl lps, slide show, and in and out of the persona of Ellington, independent actor and playwright, Cedric Liqueur captures this "beyond category" musician from his childhood growing up in Washington, DC in 1927 to 1957 when the Duke Ellington Orchestra was one of the most celebrated big bands in the world. Rocks In My Bed was first written and produced two years ago as a music appreciation program for sensory impaired children but has become a popular program for all audiences and all ages across the United States.
