PS4 Celebrates The Duke's Birthday

Edward Kennedy "Duke" Ellington, born on April 29, 1899, was a forerunner in the evolution of jazz.  he composed and played swing music, one of the best-loved jazz forms to grace the American music scene.  Each year, on his birthday, PS4M-The Duke Ellington school celebrates this icon.  Special thanks to the Jazz Foundation and the Bertha Hope Trio for teaching our students about Jazz.

Take a look at the slideshow below to see how we celebrated our namesake.  Music by Alvin Atkinson.  Click here to hear Ms. Fernandez's class (K021) sing Happy Birthday to Duke Ellington!
