The Nutcracker in the Upper Valley

12/09/10 3:00PM

We'll hear from Linda Copp, artistic director of City Center Ballet Company in West Lebanon, about the company's production of "Clara's Dream," an adaptation of Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker, coming up this weekend.  Also, music for Christmas by Stephen Paulus, William Byrd, and Frederic Chopin (well, sort of), and Mendelssohn's brilliant Octet.
