Pay tuneful homage to the "First Lady of Song," Ella Fitzgerald, on Saturday, September 30 — which would have been her 100th birthday — at Boettcher Concert Hall. Starting at 7:30 p.m., you'll hear time-honored classics from Fitzgerald's treasure trove of tunes performed by a trio of highly skilled vocalists — Capathia Jenkins, Aisha de Haas and Metropolitan Opera diva Harolyn Blackwell — directed by Chris Dragon. While the program will mostly hew to original orchestrations by Billy May and Nelson Riddle, the singers will also perform some exciting new interpretations of Fitzgerald favorites by Tony Award-nominated arranger Larry Blank. Tickets are $30 to $104 at tickets.coloradosymphony.org. Remember, your weekend won't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing.
