In addition to church Christmas concerts, music highlights for 2023 include Florida Dance Theatre’s Nutcracker Ballet, Cirque Dreams Holidaze, and the annual Florida Southern and Southeastern University Christmas concerts.

The Nutcracker ballet is also a popular Christmas tradition, and we can help you find a performance of the Nutcracker Ballet near you.
