About Twelve-Twenty Four

Twelve Twenty Four will be bringing their high energy, full-scale holiday rock orchestra concert to the northeast for their 12th year in a row. Their performances feature the music of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, as well as their own holiday creations. With a total of 17 performers – a six-piece rock band, four-piece string section, six lead vocalists, and an angel storyteller – Twelve Twenty-Four brings the magic of Christmas alive at each show.

This year’s shows will feature songs from their newest release, Light in the Dark, their 2010 debut CD, Miracle on Rock Street, and all the favorite Trans-Siberian Orchestra songs people have come to love over the years.

Established in 2002, 12/24 performs its Christmas music with a theatrical, rock edge and combines it with a narrated storyline to create a family friendly holiday show suitable for all ages. They are the first and foremost recreation of TSO and are making a name for themselves now with goals that aren’t stopping here.

You can also visit them at www.facebook.com/twelvetwentyfour and while there, join their extended family to make them a family holiday tradition, as many others have.

Twelve Twenty Four would like to thank T.S.O. for inspiring us to provide just a glimpse of the magic they provide to the millions worldwide; and George Houseknecht for starting us on this incredible journey!

12/24 Gives Back
We’re not just about great music, we’re about changing lives! We believe that if we can brighten a spirit, make a smile, or touch a heart, we’ve done a little something to make the world a bit better… Here’s some of the impact we’ve made and will continue to make:
Earthly Angels Autism Fund

A portion of all sales from our debut album will directly benefit the Earthy Angels Autism Fund, a condition that now affects more children than cancer, diabetes, and AIDS combined.  Please visit their website at www.earthlyangels.org

The Earthly Angels Autism Fund’s MISSION is to proactively increase autism awareness; provide funding to qualified nonprofit organizations for autistic services, support programs and education; and to bring hope to those families who deal with the hardships of this disorder.

Every year in partnership with Earthly Angels we have the pleasure of playing a special show for the families of Autistic children in the area. Here’s an article from 2010′s show: The Times Leader

White Haven CenterHistory was made at White Haven Center last Saturday evening/night (November 19th,2011). In an astonishing effort by residents and staff (many volunteers) one hundred and fifty two of one hundred and sixty two of our loved ones had an opportunity to participate and enjoy a concert that was provided as a gift by the high energy rock orchestra Twelve-Twenty Four at the Hazleton High School auditorium.

When the lights came on for a brief intermission the sight of wheelchairs and their occupants lining the aisles was just unbelievable as one could imagine the tremendous effort that was put into this affair by staff and residents of White Haven Center. The staff/family at White Haven Center just keeps on setting the bar higher and higher in order that our loved ones to enjoy a quality of life that they deserve.

A quote from Facility Director Fred Lokuta to the cast of Twelve-Twenty Four, “The 152 residents of White Haven Center have never been witness to greatness – and all of you epitomize greatness. God has blessed you with a gift that you share with others unselfishly and without recompense. Your message of life and hope as a living miracle from God reverberates throughout every note, interaction and sound. This message – your message – now lives inside each one of us.”

–Tom Kashatus, White Haven Center Relatives and Friends Organization President
