Description:

Early in 1960 producer Irving Townsend offered Duke Ellington the opportunity to record a project of his choosing. Ellington's musical associate, Billy Strayhorn, suggested a recomposing of Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's romantic 1892 Nutcracker Suite, but in a jazz style with lots of urban flare. The Ellington-Strayhorn jazzed-up version was released later that year.

Appalachian State University's Jazz Ensemble I and Appalachian Symphony Orchestra come together and present an exciting holiday evening of both masterpieces. That's over 100 musicians live on stage!

Come join us for an unforgettable evening.
