As always, Music Director David Hagy promises an impressive orchestra sound with over 50 musicians, including two harps and the celeste. And, it is no secret that Maestro Hagy enjoys this artistic event — he has often said that the “Nutcracker” collaboration with the Piedmont Dance Theatre is his “favorite concert of the year!” Choreographed by Piedmont Dance Theatre co-artistic directors Rebecca and Daniel Wiley, this year’s production boasts new sets, new costumes, even new dancers!

Bill and Nancy Stanback are this year’s Concert Sponsors, Sarah Kellogg is sponsoring Music Director David Hagy, and Charlotte Eye Ear Nose & Throat Associates, P.A. is the Production Sponsor. For ticket information, visit or call 704-637-4314.
