We launch the evening with piano music from Beata Moon, followed by a keyboard work from Olivier Messiaen. Also, an etude from Philip Glass, Aaron Copland's Duo for flute and piano, and two excerpts from Lukas Foss's first major work, "The Prairie." Later in the evening, visions of sugar rum cherries and peanut brittle brigades dance in our heads (and ears!) as we enjoy the Duke Ellington/David Berger charmer, The Harlem Nutcracker.
