Duke Ellington’s Arrangement of Tchaikovsky’s “The Nutcracker Suite”
BIG BAND HOLIDAY
JazzArts Charlotte presents the region’s premiere of Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn’s arrangement of Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite. Our onstage All-Star Regional Jazz Orchestra will bring the swing to your holidays with re-imagined interpretations including “Sugar Rum Cherries”, “Peanut Brittle Brigade”, and other selections, along with a dynamic ensemble of modern jazz dancers. This jazzy spin to a timeless holiday classic is one that the whole family will enjoy!
The Holiday production is JazzArts Charlotte’s only annual benefit, with a pre-concert dessert reception and silent auction supporting the education, performance-based programs, and local musicians. Visit the Holiday Auction page: the auction is live for bidding – closes Dec 10 9:00pm after final performance intermission!
