Company members from the Guthrie Theater’s “Ella” will host free music events Aug. 5 and 12 at the Minneapolis Convention Center, 1301 2nd Ave.

“Ella” music director George Caldwell will host the lunch-hour performances with Joilet F. Harris, understudy for the title role in the musical biography of legendary jazz vocalist Ella Fitzgerald. Both events run noon to 1 p.m. at the Dunn Bros. Café in the first-floor lobby of the convention center.

Attendees will have the opportunity to meet the artists who brought “Ella” to the Guthrie stage.

Tina Fabrique stars in “Ella,” which runs through Sept. 6 at the Guthrie. For information on tickets and show times, visit the theater’s website.
