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.

It is always a treat listening to the Luckman Jazz Orchestra, indoors or out, at Cal State L.A. The Luckman Fine Arts Theatre is a beautiful and intimate theatre. It's small enough that even the last row of seats is not bad at all. If you havent visited, do not hesitate. The band conducter is very entertaining. The music is always fantastic.
Quotes & Highlights
- “As adept, talented and inventive as Wynton Marsalis’ Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, the Luckman Jazz Orchestra is fully capable of establishing a similarly important bastion for jazz on the West Coast.” --Los Angeles Times
<p>Charles Owens and the Luckman Jazz Orchestra honor the legacy of Miles Davis in this tribute concert to the great jazz legend. </p> <p>Davis is considered to be one of the most influential jazz musicians of the 20th century - as a trumpeter, he is part of a storied line of players that includes Louis Armstrong and Dizzy Gillespie. But Davis didn’t just play, he was also brilliant band leader in his own right and a composer who continued to change and try different styles of music throughout his extensive career. He played on early bebop records, and was later influential in the development of modal jazz and jazz fusion. </p> <p>On this special evening, the Luckman Jazz Orchestra will honor Davis’ musical influence the best way it knows how. The Los Angeles Times writes, “As adept, talented and inventive as Wynton Marsalis’ Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, the Luckman Jazz Orchestra is fully capable of establishing a similarly important bastion for jazz on the West Coast.”</p>
