About the event
Jazz Outreach Initiative presents its second annual “Duke Ellington’s, The Nutcracker Suite” at Starbright Theater in Sun City Summerlin! This masterful adaptation of Tchaikovsky’s holiday favorite by Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn has rarely been performed in Las Vegas since the pair composed it while in residency here in 1960. Jazz Outreach Initiative returns this holiday season with the city’s most exciting big band comprised of the top musicians around creating a new tradition of jazz for the holidays. Additional music will include original scores and arrangements by top local composers, standards, and holiday favorites with special featured guest, Clint Holmes! This concert will sell out so get your tickets early!
