Family classic – ‘The Nutcracker’ – on its toes!

By Linda Jones, Executive Director Salisbury-Rowan Symphony Society

The Salisbury Symphony Orchestra and Piedmont Dance Theatre are thrilled to announce they will collaborate once more to present the family classic “The Nutcracker” for area residents and their guests. Performances are scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 17 (6:30 p.m.) and 18 (2:30 p.m.), at Keppel Auditorium at Catawba College. Reserved seating is offered, and tickets can be purchased on-line by visiting salisburysymphony.org

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 salisburysymphony.org or call 704-637-4314.
