The neoclassical orchestra Mannheim Steamroller, conducted by Chip Davis, takes the stage for two shows on Saturday, Nov. 17, during its 31st Christmas tour.

Each show lasts 2 hours with a 15-minute intermission. The early show’s seating begins at 2 p.m., the later show at 7 p.m. Tickets are available to purchase on the Mannheim Steamroller’s website (http://www.mannheimsteamroller.com/event/) and Civic Center’s website (https://www.cheyenneevents.org/civic/). Prices range from $48 in the balcony, $58-$68 in the lodge, and $78 in the orchestra section.

The orchestra\ has “sold over 40 million albums outselling artists such as Bruce Springsteen, Bon Jovi and Billie Joel.” Of those, 29 million have been Christmas albums, with a new twist to Christmas music. Per its website again, “Mannheim Steamroller’s music styling, dubbed ‘18th Century Classical Rock’, is largely credited with establishing the genre of New Age music.”
