Don’t look now, but we’re just about five weeks out from Christmas. If the holiday spirit hasn’t kicked in quite yet, head to The Classic Center on Sunday, when new-age icons Mannheim Steamroller will dose unsuspecting Athenians with a big ol’ hit of seasonal cheer. Led by composer Chip Davis, the long-running collective has explored soft prog, light jazz and modern classical sounds, though it’s primarily known for its baroque takes on holiday classics, having released no fewer than two dozen Christmas albums during its four decades of existence. Not even Santa himself could put you in a more festive mood.
Join the celebration as Mannheim Steamroller Celebrates 35 years of holiday magic. Experience a performance from the No. 1 Christmas music artist in history, Chip Davis, and for the first time ever, hear the entire album that started it all.
