Three members of the Chattanooga Ballet professional company, Dillon Davis, Samantha Sole and Nena Widtfeldt, along with guest artist Megan Quiroz, will provide a preview performance from the upcoming production of the holiday classic The Nutcracker on Thursday, Nov. 21 at 11 a.m. in the Erlanger Medical Mall. This year’s show will feature choreography by new Artistic Director Brian McSween and play at the Tivoli Theatre on Dec. 13-15.
The performances are hosted by the Arts at Erlanger committee, a volunteer organization that facilitates art-based therapy throughout the health system. The goal of the Arts at Erlanger committee is to provide reprieve for hospital patients and visitors who may draw comfort from a variety of art forms including visual art, music and dance.
