VAN WERT – Van Wert Live announces another holiday lineup hit, Wizards of Winter, on Sunday, December 5 at the Niswonger Performing Arts Center. Presented by Ciao Med Spa, the Wizards of Winter featuring former members of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra will electrify the Christmas season with a memorable rock performance. Membership sales start today with tickets starting at just $ 25. General sales begin Tuesday August 3.
The Wizards of Winter hosted a rock event for the whole family with former members of the Trans Siberian Orchestra and other classic rock bands including Def Leppard, Blue Oyster Cult, Rainbow, Trixter and the Ted Nugent Band. The stage show consists of 12 musical wizards who will command the stage with a symphonic approach to the great roots of progressive rock. Co-founder, lead singer / flautist Sharon Kelly says, “The whole experience of bringing our original music to people is very enriching. Especially since we see such a wide age range in the people who attend our shows. Our music truly transcends generational boundaries.
The Wizards take audiences on a musical journey that encompasses the vast array of feelings experienced during the holiday season. It’s an emotional roller coaster ride, told through original compositions that range from ballads to prog-metal. There is something in the show for everyone in the family. The 12-member ensemble features soaring vocal harmonies, precision string instrumentation, powerful percussion, and mind-blowing keyboard work, all around a rich storyboard that evokes December’s past.
The Wizards of Winter will bring their musical intensity, stage drama and holiday fun to Van Wert on December 5th to entertain all generations as a must-see family event this Christmas season at the Niswonger.
