Jazz Nutcracker

The 2023 Jazz Nutcracker was a tremendous success thanks to our outstanding musicians, our fabulous director, our tireless volunteer boosters, and our generous and enthusiastic audience! Our gracious thanks to all. We look forward to Jazz Nutcracker returning in 2024! Please check back in the fall for tickets.

The Jazz Nutcracker is presented each year by

The Roosevelt Jazz Band

Roosevelt Jazz proudly presents Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn’s Jazz Nutcracker, a fanciful and swingin’ take on the Tchaikovsky suite. This event has been a Seattle holiday tradition for 25 years. We look forward to seeing you in 2024!

For inspiration, here are two clips from 2022’s Nutcracker performance!
