The Philadelphia Orchestra kicked things into high gear during the final week of its summer residency at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center (SPAC), with a little help from friends Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra.

On August 15, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra performed a program featuring the enduring music of Duke Ellington, while the two orchestras teamed up for the first time ever to perform Marsalis’ own Swing Symphony composition, conducted by William Eddins.

Later that night, for the first of two “Live at the Jazz Bar” nights, Chuck Lamb performed at the Hall of Springs Jazz Bar.
