The breathtaking show is created using 2,000 watts of sound, 47,000 feet of cable and 10 tons of holiday decorations. Symphony in Lights is choreographed by renowned light artist Carson Williams, who garnered famed after a home video of his Mason, Ohio home’s holiday light and music show made its way to YouTube in 2005. His light display became so popular it created traffic jams in his neighborhood. The popular display was even featured in a Miller Lite beer commercial and Williams appeared on NBC’s The Today Show.
