The exciting Mannheim Steamroller 35th Anniversary Christmas Concert Tour is happening in Wichita, Kansas, on December 23rd, 2019. The Hartman Arena in Park City is the place to enjoy this wonderful event.
The 35th Anniversary Tour
Its name is influenced by the 18th-century German musical crescendo style (Mannheim Walze, or Roller). Sounds of the seasons and other themes inspire the music of the Mannheim Steamroller.
This annual event by founder and creator of the Mannheim Steamroller, Chip Davis, transformed a collection of classical music performed with electric bass and synthesizers into a neoclassical new-age sensation. The performance is a celebration of its 35th Anniversary, and the show will feature original classic Christmas hits that date from the first Mannheim Steamroller Christmas. Additionally, there will be multimedia effects in an intimate setting.
A Grammy Award winner, Mannheim Steamroller has sold more than 40 million albums, 29 million of which had the Christmas theme. Their Christmas music sets the mood and is a wonderful treat as the Holiday season shopping is over.
