This December join powerhouse vocalist Chris Pinnella (formerly of Trans-Siberian Orchestra) along with his phenomenal 15-Piece Orchestra, as they ring in the holiday season with all your favorite Christmas Classics and Holiday Hits!

Last year’s sold out performance brought us very special guests Mara Justine (America’s Got Talent Finalist / American Idol Top 10) and the young phenom Brayden Morgan joining Pinnella for a beautiful rendition of ‘The Prayer’. This time around, expect to hear staples, ‘Santa Claus Is Coming To Town‘, ‘Silver Bells‘,’ Merry Christmas Baby‘, ‘Christmastime Is Here‘ and ‘Noel’ to classic tunes, ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas‘, ‘The Christmas Song‘, and ‘White Christmas‘ to Pinnella’s legendary take on Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah‘ and so much more!

“Pinnella possesses a soaring rich baritone voice that just leaves you speechless. With his amazing orchestra, he takes each song into majestic territory.” (New York Times)


Whether performing with symphony orchestras around the country, leading his own combos of anywhere from 8-15 players or (for several tours of North America and Europe) lending his finely honed skills to the prog-rock / crossover locomotive known as the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. Chris Pinnella’s association with the late Paul O’Neil’s spectacularly scaled project netted the NJ native a platinum record for his contributions to ‘The Lost Christmas Eve’ Tour and a chance to perform for over 1 Million people for New Year’s Eve in Berlin.

In the process the seasoned young performer built his brand as a bandleader through gigs at venues that range from big city nightspots to theatres across the United States. In addition, Pinnella has been in demand for various Luxury, Private, Charity, & Fundraising Events across the country. Playing events at The Rainbow Room, The Philadelphia Museum of Art, Jazz! At Lincoln Center, The Mandarin Oriental, The Plaza Hotel, Guastavino’s, The Explorer’s Club, & many more. Recently Pinnella was tapped by UK producer Ben Lewis to tour as a guest vocalist with American Young Voices performing in major arenas throughout the United States.
