LIMA — Extending the sounds of the holiday season, Mannheim Steamroller brings holiday music to Veterans Memorial Civic Center today.

The Civic Center Foundation reached out to add to the holiday season programming for the Lima area.

“Mannheim Steamroller was at the top of the list, knowing they would fit well here in the Lima area,” said Abe Ambroza, CEO of the Civic Center. “We started talking to them in December of 2016 for December of 2017. We really stayed on them.”

Mannheim Steamroller needs no introduction, due to its famous brand of Christmas music. The show is characterized as “18th Century Classical Rock.” Mannheim Steamroller’s annual holiday tour has become an American holiday tradition.

The foundation questioned the date, after Christmas, but once they thought it through, extending the holiday season seemed like good timing.

“We are excited about it. Ticket sales are going well,” said Ambroza.
