STG Presents The Bell Ringer at The Moore Theatre on Sunday, December 22, 2019.
The new holiday rock opera The Bell Ringer is coming to The Moore Theater. The show features former Trans-Siberian Orchestra members Jody Ashworth and Valerie Vigoda, and delivers a powerful and inspiring experience in the early TSO tradition, combing rock music with poignant storytelling. Joining them are a number of local music icons, including Roger Fisher (Heart), with other band members hailing originally from Sweden, Spain, Russia, and Turkey. The Bell Ringer is Seattle-area progressive rock band Symphony North’s debut album, which also features members of Dream Theater—James Labrie and Jordan Rudess—weaving anthemic new renditions of Holiday classics with powerful original songs.
The show is raising money for the Toys for Tots Literacy Program, to give kids not just a gift to open during the Holidays, but the skills to help them build their own futures.
The Bell Ringer is a show both rock fans and families can build a new Holiday tradition around, with big performances and a poignant story of selflessness. The story of The Bell Ringer takes place on the night of Christmas Eve, when one destitute man learns, by helping others in simple but important ways, a deeper sense of his own self-worth.
The Bell Ringer composer and producer, Peter Orullian, is a former front man for legendary Seattle bands Heir Apparent and Fifth Angel, who, not many years ago, in a chance meeting, received words of personal encouragement from Paul O’Neill—the late founder and composer of the multi-platinum-selling Trans-Siberian Orchestra—who told Orullian the world needs more Christmas stories and Christmas music, and encouraged him to get his record done.
This is going to be a must-attend holiday show, which is also raising money for the Toys for Tots Literacy Program. Watch for more special guest artists to be announced soon.
