Symphony North is the brainchild of Peter Orullian, former front man for international rock and metal legends Heir Apparent and Fifth Angel. After words of personal encouragement from Paul O’Neill, the late founder and composer of the multi-platinum-selling Trans-Siberian Orchestra (TSO), Orullian has written The Bell Ringer, a fully-realized 24-song holiday rock opera. The Bell Ringer is a Christmas story throwback--in the vein of A Christmas Carol, It's a Wonderful Life--in which the best gift is the gift of self. The album is engineered by Casey Bates (Portugal the Man).
Featured artists on The Bell Ringer include former TSO recording and/or touring members: Tim Hockenberry (also an America’s Got Talent semi-finalist), Michael Lanning, Jody Ashworth, and Valerie Vigoda. In addition, The Bell Ringer features members of the Grammy-nominated and # Billboard-charting band Dream Theater: vocalist James Labrie, and keyboardist Jordan Rudess (voted by Radar Music Magazine as Greatest Keyboardist of All Time).
Tour dates are being considered for 2020, and will be announced as appropriate.
