We went to the concert today. Awesome. Simply awesome. 15 musicians (5 of them as the leads) and they each are remarkably gifted musicians. They got a standing O and played two encore songs - including my favorite Silent Night which was not in the program (I suspect they hold it back on purpose). Anyway, it was a sold-out house and everyone seemed to love the show. Mannheim Steamroller rules! Well worth the ticket price. And the gate wasn't bad either - the gross is around $140,000 per show so they are taking in $280k for their Sunday stop in Huntsville.
