    The Brooklyn Center celebrates its 59th season with a number of great performances including this tribute to Ella Fitzgerald.  Dubbed “The First Lady of Song,” she was the most popular female jazz singer in America for more than half a century. This special tribute concert, performed by the 17-member Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra featuring vocalist Deloris King Williams, will include original arrangements pulled from the Smithsonian and Ella Fitzgerald Charitable Foundation archives, many of which haven’t been heard by live audiences for over 40 years.
