Trans-Siberian Orchestra Review

The Trans-Siberian Orchestra puts on a show that is an absolute feast for the ears and eyes. Check out this review and get the details.

Yesterday, I attended a Trans-Siberian Orchestra performance. Now doubt you’ve heard one of their popular tunes on the radio such as Christmas Eve In Sarajevo or Wizards of Winter. They sound great on the radio, but seeing the performance live is an unbelievable experience.

The Trans-Siberian Orchestra (or TSO as fans call it) is so eclectic that it almost defies description. It’s an unlikely and impossible combination of an 80’s rock concert, classical music, spoken narrative, a laser light show, and pyrotechnics! (Did I mention it snows inside too?) Amazingly, it works. Actually, that’s an understatement. It rocks.

The performance is an auditory roller coaster. Interestingly, the band makes use of silence at certain parts of the numbers. The silence is usually followed by a spectacular crescendo. As in good writing, drama is contrast and the Trans-Siberia Orchestra proves that to be true in music as well.

On a personal note, I have to thank the lovely Diane L. and her equally lovely mother, Jacqueline L. for getting me the tickets in time. It was like a sitcom episode of people passing the tickets from one person to another. (Think of the Brady Bunch episode in which the characters kept handing off the architectural plans in the cardboard tube to each other.)
