Gateway Chamber Orchestra to perform Holiday Favorite The Nutcracker

Gateway Chamber OrchestraClarksville, TN – Enjoy the holidays with the Gateway Chamber Orchestra as they announce their return to the stage with a modern interpretation of The Nutcracker.

In their first live audience performance since February 2020, the GCO presents the Tchaikovsky favorite with a Duke Ellington twist featuring special guest artists from the Nashville Ballet.

Gather the whole family for a fun and festive holiday performance! After the last performance, the GCO will host an optional Sugar Plum Party with sweet treats for children and a photo opportunity with the Sugar Plum Fairy. Children are invited to dress up.
