Here comes Old St. Nick! This festive holiday program features a jazzy take on Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker and a powerful rendition of O Holy Night. Bring the whole family to enjoy these holiday favorites as we make merry the ending of one of the toughest years to date with a celebration of togetherness.
