Celebrate 30 years of musical holiday magic and 40 years of groundbreaking “Fresh Aire” compositions with this milestone special from the American group known for their blending of classic music and rock.  Mannheim Steamroller 30/40 Live combines interviews and behind-the-scenes footage with musical performances.

Mannheim Steamroller 30/40 Live was captured over two evenings in 2014 at the Orpheum Theater in Omaha, Nebraska, the group’s hometown.

The program features songs from their ever-popular Mannheim Steamroller Christmas annual tour, including the iconic “Deck the Halls” arrangement by Grammy Award-winning composer Chip Davis, “God Rest Ye, Merry Gentlemen,” “Silent Night,” and a special performance of “Greensleeves” featuring Elyse Davis, the daughter of Chip Davis.

New performances from composer/producer Davis’ early career “Fresh Aire” series include “Toccata” and Four Rows of Jacks.”

Watch Mannheim Steamroller 30/40 Live Thursday November 25 on WITF. Enjoy encore presentations on Sunday November 28 at 8pm.  During the broadcast you will have the opportunity to make a donation to get tickets to see Mannheim Steamroller in concert later this year.
