From Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker to Anderson's Sleigh Ride, the music will put listeners in the mood for the holiday season. The program will also include a delightful arrangement of Russian Christmas music, Strauss's Tales from the Vienna Woods, and the U.S. premier ofBehold the Night by Larysa Kuzmenko.
The youthful choristers of Pinkerton Academy will join the NH Phil for a selection of music for chorus and orchestra.
