The magic and tradition of The Nutcracker returns this holiday season to the Capitol Center for the Arts!

Follow young Clara and her Nutcracker on their journey through the snow as Tchaikovsky’s cherished score is played by a live orchestra and choreography beautifully danced by students and alumni of Eastern Ballet Institute of Concord. Join us in the Land of Sweets – a true family treat!

The Southern New Hampshire Symphony is a community orchestra made up of local music teachers, community members and music students at Southern NH University.  Founded in 2008, this eighty piece ensemble is celebrating it’s ten year anniversary in 2018.  Proceeds from this program will support a scholarship for Southern NH University first year student violinist Sarah Cronin.
