A call for musical information...

Has anyone out there actually been to a Trans-Siberian Orchestra concert? I'm thinking about a road trip to see them and wonder if the atmosphere would be appropriate for LP. I know she likes the music, but the composers have Rock God PHD's and I'd hate to drag LP into a stage rush, if they attract that sort of crowd. Oh, and if you have no idea who they are, they combine so many different styles (take a look at the list of vocalists in their band list!) into their music I don't think I can accurately describe it, so definitely poke around their website and have a listen to their audio files, or peak at a video. I can say that I think my favorite tune is A Mad Russian's Christmas from Christmas Eve and Other Stories. Or maybe, Mephistopheles' Return off of Beethoven's Last Night.

I have a friend who took his grandmother and said she thought it was way too loud but was otherwise unharmed.

That sounds promising, but LP doesn't like loud things and that was one thing I was worried about. Hmmm...

Went last Holiday season in Phx...it was marvelous! It is a great experience for children...the concert we saw it "snowed" in the auditorium. It is an orchestra...it will be somewhat loud but no stage rush, no mosh pit. The audience ranged from 4-5 to 75+. It was great afternoon (we went to the matinee).
