The Sea Coast Symphony Presents Mark Wood Trans-Siberian Experience
THE SEA COAST SYMPHONY PRESENTS
THE MARK WOOD TRANS-SIBERIAN EXPERIENCE
The original string master of the multi-platinum selling Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Mark Wood, joins the Sea Coast Symphony, to create a full live orchestra experience like none other. In his own words, Mark tells the story of creating this energetic and entertaining show:
I’ll never forget the phone call I received over 30 years ago from my dear friend and brilliant guitarist, Al Pitrelli. He shared with me that famed rock producer Paul O’Neill was putting together a rock orchestra and they wanted ME to oversee the “orchestra” part of this metal rock band
“Of course,” I exclaimed! I studied at Juilliard and played both rock and classical styles on my hand made electric violin. The band was to be called the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. The rest is history….
For over 15 years, I was involved with catapulting this great band into multi-platinum status as we performed multiple concerts daily in arena sized venues for 30,000+ people!
Several years later, Dee Snider of Twisted Sister fame created “Van Helsing’s Curse” (VHC) specifically with me in mind to be the electric string master of that stage extravaganza.
Both of these immense and important experiences led me to creating my new concert experience.
I’ve done my work, and now it is time for me to share my new vision of presenting a holiday and year-round concert experience featuring music from TSO and VHC, along with iconic and legendary rock classics, as well as my original compositions.
