Christmas Eve/Sarajevo 12/24
As performed by Trans-Siberian Orchestra
Words and music by Paul O'Neill and Robert Kinkel [Trans-Siberian Orchestra] / arr. Bob Phillips
Pop Concert Full Orchestra
As seen in the mind-boggling Trans-Siberian stage show! This thought-provoking medley of Christmas tunes describes a lone cellist playing Christmas carols in the midst of the Bosnian war. The piece reflects the power, drama, and hope of a single musician in the midst of war, reflecting on the power of music to bring hope. Similar to the popular string arrangement, this full orchestra setting includes a rock rhythm section that contributes to an intense and very hip musical experience. Perhaps include a field trip to see the band live with lights and effects.
