Twelve Twenty-Four will be bringing their high energy, full-scale holiday rock orchestra concert to the northeast for the 14th 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 fourteen performers, which includes a six-piece rock band, multi-piece string section, and a variety of vocalists, Twelve Twenty-Four brings the magic of Christmas alive at each show.
This year’s shows will feature songs from their 2012 release, Light in the Dark; their 2010 debut CD, Miracle on Rock Street; as well as everyone’s favorite selections from all five Trans-Siberian Orchestra recordings.
Established in 2002, Twelve Twenty-Four performs its Christmas music with a theatrical, rock edge to create a holiday show suitable for fans of all ages. As the nation’s original and longest running recreation of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Twelve Twenty-Four continues making a name for itself throughout the Mid-Atlantic Region. Steel Notes Magazine describes Twelve Twenty-Four’s music as, “…it has the hardness and creativity of Rush combined with the finesse and perfection of Pink Floyd!”
Almost every Twelve Twenty-Four performance benefits a specific group or charity. Over the past eight years, Twelve Twenty Four has helped these organizations raise tens of thousands of dollars!

|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.”
