Tchaikovsky: The Nutcracker, composed and arranged by Ellington/Strayhorn/Murtha

STEP into the holiday season with this fully realized jazz version of the timeless Nutcracker. Riffing off of Ellington’s dazzling reimagining of a portion of Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece, jazz composer Paul Murtha has created an entire “Swingin Nutcracker” with both an Act 1 and Act 2.

    It said 25$. A bit steep for me at this time so backing out. Sorry

    • Whitney

      Well, the tickets start at about $60-70 usually, so $25 is a big discount normally.

    Hi Whitney, I am waiting in the lobby when you come in the building. It was too cold to walk to the pizza place. Thanks. Sheray

    Whitney, I understand that you can't afford to buy tickets because people might not show up. My comment was to let you know that I still would like to attend the event on Friday.
    This morning I was able to purchase two tickets for Step Afrika. I can meet you at the Meyerhoff before the show to get the tickets. What time do you plan to be at the event? Thanks , Sheray

      All members of the group are welcome to RSVP--there are usually other ways to get tickets, though you will not be sitting with the group. Maybe ideal of you"re bringing a date! ;-) I did get your funds, though.

      Robin--we are still going on Friday. You sent me money for a ticket after I rescheduled the event. The refunds are available for folks who sent me money for Saturday tickets. Feel free to message me if there's something else going on.

    Hi Whitney. Thanks for your response. I confirm that I would Iike to receive a refund as a result of the Meetup date change. I hope you enjoy your family event. I look forward to future meet ups with this group!

    Good Morning. Being that the event date has changed, I am unable to attend. Whitney, I requested a refund of my ticket cost via PayPal. I look forward to meeting everyone at a future event.

    5 days ago

    • Whitney

      Yolanda, I was going to email you and the others who have paid already for Saturday and offer a ticket for Friday or Saturday or a refund, since I have not purchased tickets yet. This would be a one-time refund exception, since I had a last minute family event pop up on Saturday, I had to move the event.

    Whitney, I am trying to
    Pay for two tickets through PayPal. I always have problems with PayPal. I will keep trying in between working today. I know today is the last day to purchase tickets through you for $12.50. I want two tickets. Thanks. Sheray

      I can't afford to purchase tickets for people who can't get me the money beforehand. Folks often sign up for events and don't show, so I am unable to buy tickets without the PayPal payment.

    Hi Whitney,

    I just sent the 12.50 through paypal.
