The Nutcracker: Tchaikovsky Meets Ellington
Presented by Symphony 21
Symphony 21 presents the Nutcracker in a way you’ve never heard! This holiday season, treat yourself to a performance of Tchaikovsky’s timeless ‘Nutcracker Suite’ (with additional selections from the ballet) in its full orchestral glory. Alongside this seasonal favourite, experience the thrill of a full-sized big band, made up of some of the best jazz musicians in Vancouver performing Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn’s arrangements of the Nutcracker.
Celebrate the season with Symphony 21!
Symphony 21 will be performing the orchestral suite in the second half of the concert, while members of the Jaelem Bhate Jazz Orchestra will be presenting the Ellington and Strayhorn arrangements in the first. Both halves will also feature holiday favourites for both orchestra and jazz ensemble.
