Critically acclaimed Inland Pacific Ballet's The Nutcracker comes to life in this magnificent holiday ballet with dazzling sets, beautiful costumes, and more than 80 dancers on stage. This annual yuletide favorite tells the story of a young girl named Clara who receives a magical nutcracker doll on Christmas Eve, and sets out on a wondrous journey to the Land of the Snow and the Kingdom of Sweets. Toy soldiers, life-sized dancing dolls, and a fantastic dream with battling mice, dancing snowflakes, waltzing flowers, and the delightful Sugar Plum Fairy stir the imagination. IPB's The Nutcracker is the holiday tradition your family will treasure!

The Pomona College Orchestra, conducted by Eric Lindholm, has a long tradition as an important creative and cultural outlet for the students, faculty, and staff of The Claremont Colleges. It usually has representatives from all five of the undergraduate colleges, as well as other local colleges and the greater Claremont community, and enjoys as its home the beautiful Bridges Hall of Music on the Pomona College campus. The orchestra engages music from all across the repertoire, including major works by Beethoven, Brahms, Tchaikovsky, Mahler, Bartók, Stravinsky, Shostakovich, and many others, and it collaborates regularly with faculty soloists, select student soloists, and the Pomona College Choir.
