There is something truly magical about watching Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker performed with a live orchestra. On a Saturday in December that magic will be unfurled with one of the oldest symphonies in the country.

The Bangor Symphony's webpage will confirm for you that founded in 1896, making BSO one of the oldest continuously operating orchestras in the U.S. The other wonders of these live performances are the Bangor Areas Children's Choir and the varied and gifted dancers from the Robinson Ballet.
Since the company changes from year to year the actual show is changed up some to play to their strengths.  This makes every year's familiar tale beautifully different.
