These tickets are a fundraiser for the Arkansas PBS Foundaion, and all proceeds will support programming on AETN, Arkansas's PBS affiliate and only statewide public service media network.
Viewers interested in previewing the tour on AETN may watch 'Mannheim Steamroller 30/40 Live' Saturday, June 4, at 4:30 p.m. and Sunday, June 12, at 5 p.m.
This special was recorded over two evenings in December 2014 at the Orpheum Theater in Omaha, Nebraska, the hometown of Mannheim Steamroller. The program features songs from their ever-popular Mannheim Steamroller Christmas annual tour: the iconic 'Deck the Halls' arrangement by Chip Davis, 'God Rest Ye, Merry Gentlemen,' 'Silent Night,' and a special performance of 'Greensleeves' featuring Elyse Davis, daughter of Chip Davis. New performances of composer/producer Chip Davis' early career 'Fresh Aire' series include 'Toccata' and Four Rows of Jacks.'
