Trio212 presents the Nutcracker and Holiday Cheer

I think we can all agree that this holiday season looks and feels very different than any we've ever had. Many of us are refraining from seeing our families and in the absence of that warmth, love, and tradition we are seeking connection, something to ground us. One of my favorite traditions is seeing the Nutcracker and sharing holiday music with those I care about.
Now, although three woodwinds does not an orchestra make, we have put together some charming arrangements of dances from the oh-so-famous ballet along with some Christmas and Hanukkah favorites for all of those wish to share in the holiday spirit with us. The three of us have done many Groupmuses in the past and are excited to be able to extend our reach beyond NYC to those who love music, nerdery, and joy-making!
Selections from The Nutcracker:
-Dance of Mirlitons
-Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies
-Waltz of the Flowers
Various Christmas and Hanukkah songs, arr. by Mark Sophia (our oboist)
