Marching toy soldiers, waltzing snowflakes, mischievous mice and Tchaikovsky's unforgettable score are quintessential hallmarks of the holidays. Celebrate the season with Marat Daukayev Ballet Theatre's student production of The Nutcracker, a holiday ballet for the whole family. Featuring dancers of all ages, The Nutcracker tells the story of young Clara, who receives a gift of a wooden nutcracker doll at her parents' Christmas party. That night, she dreams her nutcracker comes to life and together they battle the wicked Mouse King and journey through an enchanted forest of snow to reach the Kingdom of Sweets, where the Sugar Plum Fairy and all her sweet subjects await them.

this by far was the worst performance from the LJO in a long time; we were pretty disappointed. They seemed sloppy and the pieces they chose to play sounded like they were showtunes and generic. I have loved the performances from LJO in the past, and will continue to attend their Jazz Tributes, but this was one I could have afforded to miss.
Herbie Hancock is a true icon of modern music. Throughout his explorations, he has transcended limitations and genres while still maintaining his unique, unmistakable voice. Herbie's success at expanding the possibilities of musical thought has placed him in the annals of this century's visionaries. With an illustrious career spanning five decades, he continues to amaze audiences and never ceases to expand the public's vision of what music, particularly jazz, is all about today.
The Luckman Jazz Orchestra, under the direction of Charles Owens, concludes their season-long series of tributes and honors this jazz titan with an evening journey through the powerful and significant works he has created over the course of his prolific career.
