Who is Trans-Siberian Orchestra?

Trans-Siberian Orchestra (or TSO) was formed from the minds of producers Paul O'Neill and Robert Kinkel, along with the members of the rock band Savatage, particularly when their song "Christmas Eve/Sarajevo 12/24" came out on their album Dead Winter Dead. Mixing rock music with classical, they came up with their first Christmas-themed album, Christmas Eve and Other Stories, in 1996 with a very warm reception. They have subsequently released two other Christmas albums, The Christmas Attic (1998) and The Lost Christmas Eve (2004), to finish out their Christmas Trilogy. TSO has also created two non-Christmas albums, Beethoven's Last Night (2000), and  Night Castle (2009). They have tours every Christmas, with East and West touring bands, to bring their Christmas music to as many people as possible during November and December, and will stay after each concert to sign autographs and chat with fans. Their live shows are not to be missed! Please browse around the site to become more familiar with this wonderful group. If you are already a fan, enjoy reliving the experience!

Christmas Lights Homage to TSO

Some people like to show their holiday cheer through--as well as their appreciation for--TSO's music by choreographing their Christmas lights to TSO songs. Here are some examples:

Two different houses to "Christmas Eve/Sarajevo 12/24:"

Five different ones to "Wizards in Winter:"
