The first part of the concert features Tchaikovsky’s magical Nutcracker Suite, one of the quintessential musical expressions of the Christmas spirit as well as Delibes’ spirited Prelude and Mazurka from Coppélia Suite.

The second part of the concert starts off with Leroy Anderson’s “Christmas Festival” that uses the themes of nine popular Christmas carols and songs. It continues with an uplifting selection of orchestrated Christmas Jazz classics featuring the amazing, well-established jazz trio Ioanna Troullidou (voice), Charis Ioannou (saxophone) and Μarios Toumbas (piano).
