“We were seeking a best-in-class production partner to bring Ella’s phenomenal body of work to new audiences in a very unique way that would create lasting memories and share her lifelong legacy,” says Stanley Lerman, chief operating officer, Evolution. “We are excited to partner with the talented TCG team to create and tour this highly immersive symphony show on behalf of the Foundation.”
This official licensed production will allow audiences to experience the greatest hits of Ella Fitzgerald with the arrangements of an orchestra as well as multimedia elements, including never before seen assets from the Foundation’s archive. Shows are scheduled
The partnership with the Foundation and Evolution is part of TCG’s overall strategy to grow its portfolio of official live events and immersive experiences for music fans around the world.
Ella Fitzgerald in Concert will include arrangements of her greatest songs performed by a live symphony orchestra. The show will also include multiple singers and a full band. A multimedia version of the show will also be produced and include video, photography, spoken word, writings and other never-before-seen items provided directly by the Foundation’s archivists.
These concerts are scheduled to start touring during the 2022 season and will perform throughout the United States and in international markets around the world.
“We are humbled and excited to be working with the Foundation and Evolution on bringing this iconic artist’s music to the concert hall in an official and entirely new way,” says Stephen Cook, president, TCG Entertainment. “These shows will perform in symphony halls, theaters and performing arts centers around the world.”
