Trans-Siberian Orchestra - Biography

This band's profile is 'invisible', meaning that it's much less prominent on the site - either because it's incomplete, or maybe doesn't entirely fit MS format.




Based in New York City, the Trans-Siberian Orchestra united a 60-piece orchestra plus chorus with the talents of Paul O'Neill, a veteran hard rock producer.

The group released its debut album, Christmas Eve And Other Stories, just in time for the 1996 holiday season. The Christmas Attic followed in 1998, and two years later the group issued its first non-seasonal recording, Beethoven's Last Night.

In 2004, the band returned with the new album The Lost Christmas Eve and collected all its Christmas recordings on the three-CD/one-DVD collection The Christmas Trilogy.

In 2009, after a five-year hiatus, the group returned with the two-disc Night Castle, a non-holiday-related concept album. A five-song EP, Dreams Of Fireflies (On A Christmas Night), followed in 2012.
