Al Pitrelli - a founder of Trans-Siberian Orchestra

Another great show at the iWireless Center with Trans-Siberian Orchestra last night.

I didn't know it was possible to like this show anymore than I already did. TSO was founded in New York City in 1996. After 20 years of rockin around our Christmas trees, I feel confident in saying they are better than ever. Two years ago was my first live experience with TSO.

But this year, it exceeded any expectations I had.

From their generosity in donating $1 from every ticket sold to Genesis Health Services to the amazing vocals, stunning visuals and the intimate way Al Pitrelli spoke with grace and gratitude to the audience. I love that a show this big gives back to EVERY community they go to. I had the honor of being able to present that check on stage to

At the end of the show when everyone stood up in applause, Al also asked everyone to remain standing to pay homage to the men and women who serve our country.

In addition to being in awe myself, I got to watch the show through the eyes of one of my children. She 'oohed and ahhed' at the sights of lights, snow falling and the one-of-a-kind computer graphic sets, projected on huge screens, that made it look like a real set in the back ground. She really loved the fact she got to meet Andrew Ross (guitarist and singer), Jodi and April (singers) before the show because during the show, she'd yell, "There's Andrew! There's April and Jodi!"

I hope you and your family enjoy your holiday season. If you got to experience TSO, then you know what I am saying here. If you never have, I can't recommend it enough.
