TCG Entertainment, a producer of touring live productions and the Ella Fitzgerald Charitable Foundation via its global licensing and brand management agency, Evolution USA announced the launch of a new partnership that will bring the beloved music of Ella Fitzgerald to audiences around the world in an entirely new way, with a live symphony orchestra.
