Concert : TSO - Trans-Siberian Orchestra

If you don't already know who the Trans-Siberian Orchestra is you are definitely missing out! You may have actually heard them and just not known who they were. There are countless Christmas lighting displays that are timed to their music, one of the most popular being Wizards in Winter. Here's a good sample of what I'm talking about.

My husband and I try to go to their show every year, we've only missed a couple, and ever year they just get bigger and more spectacular! It's so funny to see these guys who are long haired rockers, some of them well known in the metal genre, wearing tuxedos and rocking out to electrified traditional Christmas songs, as well as their own original songs within a very touching storyline. But it's so much more than that. It's beautiful and inspiring and just embodies the wonder of Christmas that I think most of us lose as we grow older.

If you can't make it to one of their shows, I HIGHLY recommend you get one of their CD's, they have 3 Christmas ones and 1 non-Christmas one now. We're all eagerly awaiting the release of their second non-Christmas album, and have been for... well... a few years now... but we know it's going to happen, any time now, right? RIGHT?! (Please Mr. O'Neill, we're ready now!)

If you're interested (and you should be, because they're just amazing!) check out their official website for more info on the albums and the video: Trans-Siberian Orchestra

The show is just spectacular and I guarantee you'll never listen to Christmas music quite the same way again. I wonder what Rudolph would sound like TSO-ified... ;)
