Duke Ellington’s wonderful “Sacred Music” is both serious and swinging, reverent and hip. Now in its 24th year, this Seattle Holiday tradition features the Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra, co-directed by Michael Brockman and Clarence Acox, with guest vocalists Everett Greene and Nichol Veneé Eskridge, the NW Chamber Chorus, and special guest tap-dancer Alex Dugdale. Presented by Earshot Jazz.
