As seen in the mind-boggling Trans-Siberian Orchestra stage show! This thought-provoking medley of Christmas tunes describes a lone performer playing Christmas carols in the midst of the Bosnian war. The piece reflects the power, drama, and hope of a single musician in the midst of war, reflecting on the power of music to bring hope. The rock rhythm section contributes to an intense and very hip musical experience. Perhaps this can inspire a field trip to see the band live with lights and effects. (3:15).
