Experience the magic of the holidays in Trans-Siberian-Orchestra style as Siberian Solstice returns to Tibbits for a musical Christmas concert at 7 p.m. Dec. 18.
Last seen on the Tibbits stage in December of 2019, Siberian Solstice provides a Christmas show with music performed in the style of the nationally acclaimed Trans-Siberian Orchestra. With more than 10 million albums sold, TSO has inspired generations of fans to rediscover the multi-dimensional art form of the rock opera. On the road, they have become one of the world’s top acts, with Billboard magazine naming TSO one of the top touring artists of the past decade.
Enhanced by lighting and video, Siberian Solstice will feature traditional Christmas music and classical pieces presented with a rock feel using electronic keyboards, drums, and guitars. Siberian Solstice has eight members on stage to accurately reproduce the TSO style. The touring group from Ohio includes founding member Dave Coonrod on bass, Dave Deal and Marie Moore on keyboard, Chuck Mauk on percussion, Jamie Blank as narrator, Mary Jackson and Jenn (Britsch) Shook on vocals, Garnet McGladdery on guitar and vocals and Kevin Peters on guitar. All are accomplished musicians with extensive recording and performance experience.
