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.
