Transcript‘Duke of Hot' Here In Concert-Dance

Duke Ellington, "The Duke of Hot, " and his orchestra will open the weekend social calendar for spring term at Southern Friday, March 24, with a concert-dance.
This all-school event, sponsored by the Student Council, is the fifth appearance of a name band in Carbondale since Feb. 16, 1949. The concert will be presented at 8 p.m. in Shryock auditorium and the dance at 9:30 in the men's gymnasium. Price of admission is $1 per person, including tax, for each event. Advance tickets may be obtained from the university ticket office in the gymnasium.
Ellington's orchestra has given concerts in Carnegie Hall, the Chicago Civic Opera House, the San Francisco Symphony Hall, the Philadelphia Academy of Music, the Boston Symphony Hall, the Hollywood Bowl, etc. In the summer of 1948 his group made an extended tour of England, Scotland, France, Switzerland, and Belgium. His recordings, especially his own compositions such as "Mood Indigo" and "Sophisticated Lady, " are among the nation's top-selling favorites.
Other name bands which have appeared under the sponsorship of University organizations this year have been Gene Krupa, Benny Goodman, Freddy Martin, and Tau Kappa Epsilon-sponsored Woody Herman.
