Sure, it's hot out now. But we all know, regardless of how long the days seem to drag on, it's AMAZING how fast the years fly by. The holidays will be here before you can say "Kris Kringle"!

Yes, Winter officially begins on Friday December 21, 2018 with the arrival of the Solstice.

And this year it is an extra-special Solstice as the legendary Mannheim Steamroller takes the stage of the US Cell Center at 7:30 p.m. that Friday night for a perfectly-timed holiday concert experience.

The 2018 Mannheim Steamroller concert tour has officially announced the Cedar Rapids performance on Friday December 21, with tickets going on sale this Friday July 27 at 10:00 a.m. at the US Cell Center box office and at Ticketmaster.com
