Trans-Siberian Orchestra will be in San Antonio on Dec. 23 at AT&T Center

SAN ANTONIO

The Trans-Siberian Orchestra is coming back to San Antonio on December 23 at the AT&T Center!

 

Trans-Siberian Orchestra has been a legend in the music industry as a rock band for 24 years.

 

 

They tour the world playing some of their Christmas classics including: Wizards in Wonderland, Christmas Canon, Christmas Eve, A Mad Russian's Christmas just to name a few.

 

Trans-Siberian Orchestra not only keeps touring for their fans, but they continue to use their success to give back to the community.

 

 

For every city TSO visits, they give back a percentage of their ticket sales to a local organization in the community.

 

This is the second year Trans-Siberian Orchestra will support The Academy at Morgan's Wonderland.

 

$1 of every ticket sold for the San Antonio tour will be donated to the Academy.
