Wizards of Winter

Ciao Med Spa presents a Holiday Rock Extravaganza for the entire family with The Wizards of Winter performing a holiday rock show titled "The Christmas Dream."

The Wizards of Winter put on a holiday rock event for the whole family featuring former members of The Trans Siberian Orchestra and other Classic Rock Bands including Def Leppard, Blue Oyster Cult, Rainbow, Trixter, and the Ted Nugent Band. The full stage spectacle consists of 12 musical Wizards who will command the stage with a symphonic approach to the great roots of progressive rock. 

Co-founder, Lead Vocalist/Flutist, Sharon Kelly states, “The whole experience of bringing our original music to people is very rewarding. Especially since we see such a wide range of ages in the people that attend our shows. Our music truly crosses generational boundaries." 

The Wizards take the audience on a musical journey that encompasses the vast range of feelings experienced during the holiday season.  It is an emotional roller coaster ride, told through original compositions that range from ballads to prog-metal. There is something in the show for everyone in the family. The 12 member ensemble boasts soaring vocal harmonies, precision string instrumentation, powerful percussion, and stunning keyboard work, layered around a rich storyboard that evokes December’s past.

The Wizards of Winter will bring their musical intensity, stage theatrics, and holiday fun to Van Wert on December 5th to entertain all generations as the Family-Must-See-Event this Christmas season at the Niswonger.
