Formed in 1996, Trans-Siberian Orchestra consists of three talented songwriters—Paul O'Neill, Robert Kinkel and Jon Oliva—and an incredibly diverse collection of musicians, ranging from rock guitarists to R&B singers to classically trained instrumentalists. Combining the grandeur of an orchestra with the energy of a hard rock group, the members of Trans-Siberian Orchestra have redefined rock opera and transcended musical boundaries, all while dazzling audiences with their incredible musicianship and highly theatrical shows. The outfit's wondrous holiday albums and engaging live performances have made them a much-loved fixture of the winter season. Full of holiday favorites as well as original material, albums from Trans-Siberian Orchestra's career include Christmas Eve and Other Stories, The Christmas Attic, Lost Christmas Eve and the non-holiday release Beethoven's Last Night.
