Jazz Night : The Nutcracker Suite
Kick off the holiday season with a twist on a familiar tradition. Jazz ONE will perform the famous “Nutcracker Suite” through the lens of two jazz luminaries, Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn. The music performed will be a direct transcription of the original album from 1960 – same notes, same rhythms, same spirit. Olivia Helton, concertmaster of the ISU Symphony Orchestra, will narrate the concert. Leave your ballet shoes at home and join us on November 17 @ 7:30 in the Martha-Ellen Tye Recital Hall for an imaginative retelling of the iconic themes written by Tchaikovsky.
Admission is $5.
Tickets are available at the door or beforehand in 149 Estes Music Hall. Seating is limited.
