Best Christmas Concerts Online
So, I don’t think I have to tell you that travel has looked a lot different in 2020. One way we have traveled safely is traveling virtually.
And we can take that same approach with our Christmas traditions. Instead of traveling somewhere to take in a Christmas concert, how about watching one from the safety of your home?
We have a lot of great Christmas concerts that I know you’ll enjoy!
1. Trans-Siberian Orchestra
Watch a live show of a 90-minute Trans-Siberian Orchestra concert. They’ll be playing music from their acclaimed Christmas Eve and Other Stories album. They’re performing on December 19, 2020, at 8:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.
