As Jonathan Rush says about the event:

Excited to be conducting Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Ballet with the Nairobi Philharmonic Orchestra, in collaboration with Dance Centre Kenya this December!
Looking forward to being a part of this project to help bring western classical music to Kenya!! I can’t wait to meet and work with all the musicians and students involved in this great production!
Also excited that this will be my first trip to the Motherland! God is opening so many doors!
Wish me luck, it’s my Nutcracker debut.
