Weekend Entertainment | Trans-Siberian Orchestra Roars Back Into Town

It’s not even Thanksgiving yet, but the holiday season is here, and we know that because Trans-Siberian Orchestra is back in town this weekend.

The big and bombastic metal-classical mashup with a Christmas-y flavor will return to Covelli Centre on Sunday for shows at 3 p.m. and 8 p.m.

TSO will present its “The Ghosts of Christmas Eve” show, along with some other favorites from its repertoire. It’s a tradition, so don’t fight it.

Tickets range from $53.50 to $103.50 at ticketmaster.com, and there are scant few remaining.

But the weekend’s entertainment begins tonight, when Black Violin comes to Powers Auditorium for a 7:30 p.m. concert. The genre-defying duo blends classical and vigorous violin playing with hip-hop beats. Tickets available at the box office.

The Youngstown Symphony Orchestra will be in action Sunday with a 2:30 p.m. Masterworks concert at Stambaugh Auditorium, with guest conductor Dean Buck. For tickets, click HERE.

Later that day, A Motown Christmas will take the stage at Powers Auditorium. The 7:30 p.m. vocal group concerts will spotlight the music of The Temptations, The Miracles and The Capitols. For tickets, click HERE.

At local community theaters, “Godspell” will continue its run at Youngstown State University. Performances will be at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 2 p.m. Sunday, in Ford Theater, lower level of Bliss Hall, on the YSU campus. Get tickets at the box office.

“The Day They Shot John Lennon” has three performances left this weekend in the Moyer Room of The Youngstown Playhouse. Curtain times are 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 2:30 p.m. Sunday. For tickets, call the box office at 330 788 7839.
