This critically acclaimed Trans-Siberian Orchestra is well known for its interpretations of traditional music. It was founded in 1996 by composers Robert Kinkel, Jon Oliva, and Paul O'Neill. Trans-Siberian Orchestra's unique musical style and influences connect otherwise isolated individuals - much like the Trans-Siberian Railway for which it is named. The show is quickly becoming a holiday tradition.
Well known for their albums "Christmas Eve and Other Stories", "The Christmas Attic", "Lost Christmas Eve", "Beethoven's Last Night", and "Night Castle", Trans-Siberian Orchestra uses a choir and a full-60 piece orchestra. In addition, there are two narrators for the show and local musicians often join the string section. Past guest musicians have included Geoff Tate (Queensryche) and Jon Anderson (Yes). The composers, musicians, and vocalists of Trans-Siberian Orchestra strive to give traditional music a greater emotional impact by incorporating special effects into the show. Lights, lasers, and pyrotechnics are timed to be in sync with the music and story.
Trans-Siberian Orchestra creates a powerful, new holiday ambiance with their shows. Their dramatic, energizing presentations are a new mixture of story telling and musical presentation. Trans-Siberian Orchestra is infused with gospel, R&B, and classical music. Signature pieces include "Oh Holy Night", "Christmas Eve/Sarajevo", and "A Mad Russian's Christmas." Lest you think the aforementioned means a somber evening, fans all the world over clamor for this new kind of rock orchestra that Rocks The House.
