TCHAIKOVSKY: Selections from "The Nutcracker"
Visions of sugarplums and beautiful ballerinas will dance in your head after seeing Tchaikovsky’s delightful Christmas ballet, performed in a condensed version created just for kids. This annual favorite finishes with a grand finale sing-along and a jolly visit from Santa himself!
Join in the fun at the interactive Musical Carnival in the concert hall lobby, where kids can test drive a musical instrument, meet the performers, and enjoy musical arts and crafts activities themed to the morning's concert. Activities begin at 9 a.m. for 10 a.m. concertgoers and 12:15 p.m. for 11:30 a.m. concertgoers.
