This year marks the 32nd anniversary of both the Christmas tour and the release of “Mannheim Steamroller Christmas,” an album that revolutionized holiday music.
Grammy Award winner Chip Davis will direct and co-produce performances with MagicSpace Entertainment. The show features Christmas classics along with selections from Davis’ groundbreaking Fresh Aire series. It includes many songs from the PBS special “Mannheim Steamroller 30/40 Live.”
The group has sold more than 40 million albums, including 28 million in the Christmas genre. With 19 gold, eight multi-platinum and four platinum records, Davis is among an elite group of artists that includes U2, Jay-Z and The Beach Boys.
