TSO returns

Monday, March 19, 2012

If you've never heard the distinct sound of the world-renowned Trans-Siberian Orchestra, another opportunity is coming up Thursday night when the band returns to Cape Girardeau to perform at the Show Me Center.

Many know the band for its creative arrangements of popular Christmas songs, but the group also gives spectacular concerts and will impress the crowd on this trip with "Beethoven's Last Night," a nonholiday-themed performance.

Band founder Paul O'Neill spoke with Southeast Missourian entertainment editor James Samons for a Q/A in SE Live recently. To read the full feature, check out the March 16 Southeast Missourian.

In the interview, O'Neill said fans will be wowed by the upcoming performance. "Expect music like you've never heard it. Lights like you've never seen them. A story presented to you in a manner you've never heard. The holiday thing has its fun, but that's not all we do," O'Neill said.

The show starts at 7:30 p.m. Thursday. Tickets may be purchased at the Show Me Center box office, by phone at 651-5000 or online at www.showmecenter.biz.
