The Nutcracker tickets range in price from $10-$25, available online at balletchelsea.org or jacksonsymphony.org

Ballet Chelsea is proud to present the 20th Anniversary performance of The Nutcracker in December, 2017. A new collaboration with the Jackson Symphony Orchestra adds to the excitement by bringing music and dance together for three performances in Jackson and Washtenaw counties, raising the visibility of the arts in both communities.

This collaboration draws on the talents of Matthew Aubin, Music Director of the Jackson Symphony Orchestra and Wendi DuBois, Artistic Director of Ballet Chelsea, in creating an enchanting holiday performance that will also feature new costumes and sets for the 20th Anniversary performance.  Both organizations draw broad audiences from southern Michigan and the joint production highlights the contributions of many talented artists from numerous mid-Michigan communities.

The narrated production is family friendly, combining the beauty of ballet, the excitement of live music, and the joy of a holiday classic story.  Performances will take place on December 8th at Jackson’s Potter Center and December 9th and 10th at Chelsea High School. Tickets go on sale November 1st at balletchelsea.org or jacksonsymphony.org.

    SongLab is a new, unique event putting a spotlight on original music. Four acts have been chosen to perform their original songs at CADL Stockbridge. The songs will be recorded, and the library will create CDs that will be available for borrowing through the CADL collection. We also plan to make the music available via streaming from the CADL website.

    Each act will receive an $80 gift card from Marshall Music and will be entered into a drawing to win $300 in professional recording studio time at Troubadour Recording Studios in Lansing.

    Behind the effort is the library’s desire to help local musicians get heard and to partner with them as they develop their careers, as well as to add locally imagined and produced content to the CADL collection.

    As CADL Stockbridge nears the completion of its eighth year coordinating the Market Music Series of Friday night concerts on the village square throughout the summer, we are excited about this new phase of involvement with the local music community!
