BOILING SPRINGS, N.C. – Hundreds of area high school musicians will enjoy a unique experience when Mark Wood, formerly of the Trans Siberian Orchestra, returns to Cleveland County to lead area high school orchestras and choruses in a concert performance on Friday, Dec. 16 at 8:00 p.m. at Gardner-Webb University’s Paul Porter Arena.

The performance is a part of Wood’s “Electrify Your Strings” program, an alternative music curriculum program that has bolstered music and arts initiatives at select high schools across the nation.

During the concert, the audience will enjoy a variety of alternative rock music, including ‘80s selections and even a few Trans Siberian Christmas tunes.  Fans will recognize other Trans Siberian footprints in the production, too, including a strobe light show and props that fit the season.
