Holiday, Classical

The Nutcracker

When: Nov. 28-30 2014

Last year, the Colorado Springs Philharmonic posted a video of Philharm musician Kelly Zuercher demonstrating the celesta, the instrument that produces the lovely tinkling sounds in Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker. (Watch it at tinyurl.com/m44t55y.) Like a piano, but with hammers that strike metal instead of strings, the celesta will star again in this annual holiday tradition this weekend — including at 2 today — along with Oklahoma City Ballet and local dancers. Direction will come from Thomas Wilson, and vocals from the Colorado Springs Children's Chorale, at the Pikes Peak Center (190 S. Cascade Ave., pikespeakcenter.com). Tickets run $27 to $55, plus fees. — Edie Adelstein
