Program Notes

Here are all your favorite Nutcracker themes rolled into a clever and lighthearted medley. For added excitement, appoint an official time keeper and use a big hourglass-type egg timer or a projected digital stopwatch so the audience can track your progress as the band frantically races to finish under 3 minutes. (An accelerando is built-in at the end in case you need to make up time!)
