Abiding Presence Lutheran Church in Burke will host a live performance of Duke Ellington’s jazz interpretation of Tchaikovsky’s “The Nutcracker Suite” from 1960.
The free concert will be led by the church’s Minister of Music David Chavez, with a ten-piece ensemble of local musicians including trumpeter Craig Fraedrich and vocalist Christal Rheams.
Donations and funds raised from a silent auction at the event will go directly to 25:40, a Burke-based nonprofit organization founded in 2003 that helps South African children who are affected by HIV/AIDS and poverty.
The concert is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 13. Abiding Presence Lutheran Church is located at 6304 Lee Chapel Road in Burke. For more information, visit www.2540.org.
