A Christmas concert tradition returns to the area this December. Siberian Solstice, a musical group from northwest Ohio, once again provides an exciting 90-minute set of Christmas music as originally performed by the nationally acclaimed group Trans-Siberian Orchestra.

The music format of traditional Christmas music and other classical pieces with electronic keyboards, drums, and guitars is enjoyed by all age groups. Siberian Solstice has eight members on stage to accurately reproduce the TSO style.

No admission will be charged, but a free-will offering will be taken.

Remaining local performances for the 2017 Christmas season include:

• Payne Elementary School Auditorium, Payne, Sunday, Dec. 10 at 7 p.m., presented by the Payne Ministerial Association.

• Huber Opera House and Civic Center, Hicksville, Friday, Dec. 22 at 7 p.m.

• The Gathering Place (Valentine Theater), Defiance, Saturday, Dec. 23 at 7 p.m.
