Baltimore, Md. (November 6, 2007) - Forty dancers from the Baltimore School for the Arts will join the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra for Act II of Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker on Saturday, December 8 at 11:00 a.m. Conductor Andrew Grams and narrator Rheda Becker will lead this action-packed performance.
Unlike other Nutcracker performances that rely on the choreography and music to convey the meaning, this performance features a narrator, Rheda Becker, to guide the children through the story.
Rheda Becker, narrator Rheda Becker is recognized as one of the outstanding professionals in the specialized art of the musical narrator. She made her debut in 1974 with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and since then has appeared with them frequently as the speaker in works by Britten, Mendelssohn, Poulenc, Prokofiev, Schoenberg, Schuller, Stravinsky and Tchaikovsky. 
In addition to guest performances with symphony orchestras throughout the United States, including the Cleveland Orchestra, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Becker has performed with chamber ensembles at Carnegie Hall's Weill Hall, Boston's Gardner Museum, the Library of Congress and the Folger Library in Washington, D.C.  Her repertoire includes a wide variety of works ranging from a 14th-century narrative to compositions by composers of the present day. She was the narrator in world premieres by the composers Ernst Krenek, Earl Kim, Robert Hall Lewis and Jonathan Holland.
Becker has been a frequent guest soloist at the Peabody Conservatory of Music.
Becker is recorded on the BIS label with the Singapore Symphony Orchestra, performing a narrated version of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker, Act II.
