2017 Transiberian Orchestra high school video contest

COLUMBUS (WCMH) — NBC4 is partnering with the Transiberian Orchestra and Ricart to give high school students the chance to win 200 tickets to an upcoming Transiberian Orchestra concert and an autographed TSO guitar!

Send us your two minute TSO video, and your school could win! Read the officials rules here.


High schools across our viewing area can enter- student groups should choreograph a light show using flashlights, phones, hall lights, car lights — anything to showcase their enthusiasm and creativity.    Show us how bright YOU can be! Just to clarify, we are looking for fun, festive videos set to TSO music lights and with things readily available- not actual performances of TSO songs.  Show us how your favorite TSO song in a  creative video 2 minutes or less and then submit it on NBC4i.com.  The viewers will then vote for their favorite on NBC4i.com during week of December 11th.

Videos can be performed by school groups, school bands, music departments, sports teams, debate clubs, glee clubs  and any other student groups and teams set to TSO music.  We encourage schools to show us how bright they can be with their best TSO performance with choreographed scenes, here are a few examples:

  • An auditorium full of students using their cell phone to flash to the music
  • A Cafeteria with choreographed moves to Wizards of Winter the song
  • The Music Students “air guitar” version of a TSO song
  • The Baseball Team using their bats to air guitar to a fun TSO song.

All songs to set student videos are below!  All Entries will need to be submitted by a full-time School Official with contact information provided. Videos must be in MP4 format and no larger than 200 MB.


This contest will accept entries beginning on November 13 at 5:00pm through December 8 at 11:59pm. Public voting, to determine the top three best video entries which will go to the final round to determine the winner, will begin at 12:00pm EST on December 11 and end at 9:00pm on December 15.
