Mannheim Steamroller brings a holiday tradition to Abravanel Hall in Salt Lake City!
Celebrate your holidays with Mannheim Steamroller, bringing their beloved Christmas concert to Salt Lake City on Friday, December 23, 2011 at Abravanel Hall.
Grammy Award® winner and mastermind behind the group, Chip Davis will direct and co-produce both the East Coast and West Coast tour ensembles of Mannheim Steamroller. The shows will feature the favorite Christmas music of Mannheim Steamroller along with state of the art multimedia effects in an intimate setting.
In 1984, Mannheim Steamroller released Mannheim Steamroller Christmas, an album that changed the entire music industry. Already a multi-platinum recording artist through its Fresh Aire series, founder Chip Davis decided to record an album of Christmas music combining the group’s signature mix of renaissance instruments with rock & roll beats. The resulting album was a runaway hit and not only propelled Mannheim Steamroller to become the biggest selling Christmas music artist in history, but also one of the top 50 biggest selling musical acts ever (they’ve sold over 35 million albums). The group’s annual Christmas tour, celebrating its 25th anniversary, has become a tradition right along with decorating the tree, exchanging presents and spending time with friends and family.
While Mannheim Steamroller is known worldwide, the story of founder Chip Davis is a true-life tale of a modern day “Renaissance Man.” From founding his own record label (American Gramaphone has been ranked by Billboard as the #1 independent label), to creating the Mannheim Steamroller "lifestyle" of food apparel and other products. Chip’s accomplishments have been extraordinary. His latest achievement is creating a cutting edge psychoacoustic technology that is being used in major medical institutions such as May Clinic and is also being studied by NASA for potential use in space.
