The Honorable Jan Perry, who recently ran for Congress in November, has arranged for The Los Angeles Jazz Orchestra to perform Duke Ellington's Nutcracker Suite at the historic The Dunbar Hotel on Central Avenue, Los Angeles on December 9th, During the 1930's and 1940's The Dunbar Hotel hosted many prominent Musicians traveling to perform in Los Angeles, including Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Louis Armstrong, Lena Horne, Josephine Baker, Billie Holiday, Cab Calloway and Paul Robeson. (All Ghosts are welcome).

Jan Perry, as LA Councilwoman, was the driving force behind the recent renovation of The Dunbar, and The Los Angeles Jazz Orchestra, coming off a hugely successful SOLD OUT concert at Catalina's in Hollywood, are delighted to play in such an historic setting.

Start time for the concert is 4p.m. The unusual start time is to accommodate the students of Jefferson High School, who have been invited to attend. The concert is free, but space is limited so arrive early.
