"Ella at the Savoy: A Centennial Tribute"
In 1934, Ella Fitzgerald was a homeless teenager on the streets of Harlem with an incredible voice - she was discovered at the Apollo Theater's famous amateur night that year and was quickly picked up by drumming powerhouse Chick Webb to perform in his orchestra.  Chick Webb's band was the most prominent of the house bands at the Savoy Ballroom, one of New York's largest ballrooms, the only integrated ballroom in New York, and the birthplace of Lindy Hop.  Before she was the First Lady of Song, Ella honed her skills as a big band singer with some of New York's top working jazz musicians of the 1930's.

April 25, 2017 marks Ella's 100th birthday and, as a centennial tribute, a group of Triangle musicians has come together to celebrate her early work with the Chick Webb Orchestra and, in the years following Chick Webb's death in 1939 at the height of the orchestra's fame, leading the orchestra under her own name - Ella Fitzgerald and her Famous Orchestra.
