Under the direction of Ron Di Lauro, and with the participation of singer Ranee Lee, l’Orchestre national de jazz de Montréal will deliver the most ambitious composition of Duke Ellington, "Black, Brown and Beige". According to Ellington's description, he wrote this jazz symphony for his first concert at Carnegie Hall on January 23, 1943, as "a parallel to the history of the Negro in America."
