Mannheim Steamroller Christmas coming to Bryce Jordan Center

July 24, 2013

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Mannheim Steamroller Christmas by Chip Davis will come to the Bryce Jordan Center for the first time at 8 p.m. Friday, Dec. 13.

The Mannheim Steamroller tour, now in its 27th year, is met by sold-out audiences and was one of the top 20 concert tours in the nation last year. Grammy Award winner Chip Davis will direct and co-produce the performances with MagicSpace Entertainment. The shows will feature the favorite Christmas music of Mannheim Steamroller along with state-of-the-art multimedia effects in an intimate setting.

In 1984, Mannheim Steamroller released "Mannheim Steamroller Christmas," an album that changed the sounds of Christmas. Already a multi-platinum recording artist through the Fresh Aire series, Davis decided to record an album of Christmas music combining the group’s signature mix of Renaissance instruments with rock 'n' roll beats. The resulting album was a hit, and Mannheim Steamroller went on to become the biggest selling Christmas music act in history. 

Tickets are $49.75 and $59.75 for reserved theater seating and go on-sale at 10 a.m. Monday, July 29, at the Bryce Jordan Center, Eisenhower Auditorium, Penn State Downtown Theatre, Altoona Campus Ticket Outlet, Walmart Ticketmaster kiosks, online at or and by phone at 800-745-3000. VIP seating is also available.
