What’s Interesting About This Concert

  • Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker was a flop when it premiered in 1892, but by the 1960s the work had become a mainstay of ballet companies and favorite of audiences world-wide.

  • Alan Silvestri’s song “Believe” from The Polar Expresswas nominated for an Academy Award, a Golden Globe, and a Grammy Award!

  • Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas! first aired on CBS in 1966, was an instant hit, and has been aired annually on television every single year since.

This concert will last approximately 80 minutes, including one 15-minute intermission. Suitable for children age 12 and up.
