2:30 PM & 7:30 PM

414 St Raphael Street

This concert will be presented by the SSO String Quartet composed of Cristina Masotti (Violin), Melissa Schaak (Violin), Geoff McCausland (Viola), and Dobrochna Zubek (Principal Cello). The SSO will collaborate with local playwright and actor Matthew Heiti to create a multidisciplinary performance for string quartet. Local puppeteer Jennifer Hazelton will delight audiences with a dynamic performance as the SSO String Quartet performs this reimagined version of the popular Nutcracker, adapted and specifically created for the occasion.

The second half of the performance features the SSO String Ensemble, made up of SSO volunteer musicians, who will perform Corelli’s beloved Christmas Concerto. The Northern Brass Quartet will round out the concert with a rousing rendition of a variety of classics such as Frosty the Snowman, The Wassail Song from Yuletide Jazz Suite No. 2, and many others.

Details are subject to change.
