Wizards of Winter bringing holiday rock opera to Trine

Trine University will welcome the Wizards of Winter and their holiday rock opera “The Christmas Dream” to the T. Furth Center for Performing Arts on Thursday, Dec. 5.

The concert will begin at 7 p.m. in the Ryan Concert Hall, with doors opening one hour prior to the performance. Tickets range from $30-$50 and will be available beginning Aug. 23 at trine.edu/furth.

Celebrating their 10th anniversary, the Wizards of Winter feature former members of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Rainbow, Blue Oyster Cult, Ted Nugent, The Irish Tenors and more.

A holiday rock event for the whole family, “The Christmas Dream” is a musical journey inside a snow globe in search of the true meaning of Christmas. The story is based around the music of the group’s upcoming third album, titled “The Christmas Dream,” along with music from their self-titled CD and their album, "The Magic of Winter."

The Wizards of Winter are bringing their musical intensity, stage theatrics and holiday fun to venues across the nation again this year. The 12-member ensemble boasts soaring vocal harmonies, precision string instrumentation, powerful percussion and stunning keyboard work, layered around a rich storyboard that evokes Decembers past.
