About this Event

A legendary composer and performer unlike any other, YANNI has brought hundreds of millions of people throughout the world together through his beloved albums and his incredible live performances. Over two billion more have experienced the magic of his music through television broadcasts worldwide. YANNI’s unforgettable performances at the Acropolis in Greece, the Taj Mahal in India, the Forbidden City in China, the Royal Albert Hall in England and El Morro in Puerto Rico have crossed countless borders, touching billions of people worldwide.

The Greek multi-instrumentalist has been called no less than "the modern day composer" by music lovers all over the world. This refers not to classical canon, but to the perfection of the amazingly pure melodies that he composes. And truly, YANNI’s talent knows no bounds, just as his music knows no borders. With more than 40 platinum and gold albums worldwide, Yanni has sold a staggering 25 million albums globally.

YANNI’s live concerts are an experience unlike any other: His powerful stage presence, unparalleled talent, and enchanting music create a concert experience that is absolutely unforgettable. Combining several genres in a single composition, YANNI’s timeless melodies are overflowing with bright, deep sound that take you on a musical journey.

Born Yanni Chryssomallis in southern Greece, YANNI came to the U.S. to attend the University of Minnesota, which gave him an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters in 2005. He studied psychology, but ultimately dedicated himself to music. At school, he played with the group Chameleon before moving to Los Angeles, where he released his first album, Optimystique, in 1980.

YANNI then delved into instrumental composing, achieving his first Platinum album with Reflections of Passion in 1990. Two years later, Dare To Dream netted his first GRAMMY nomination; its follow up, In My Time, earned another nod. YANNI’s major breakthrough came with 1993’s Yanni Live at the Acropolis, an album/video/PBS project seen by half a billion people in 65 countries. It marked the beginning of YANNI’s long association with PBS, and built a truly global audience for his music. To date, YANNI has sold more than 25 million albums globally, and his 2003 autobiography, Yanni In Words, made the New York Times bestseller list. His music is also a staple as a soundtrack for television, especially major sporting events, including the Olympic Games, The Super Bowl, The Tour De France, and the PGA Golf Championships, since 1988.

Over the past several years, YANNI’s ongoing studio explorations have resulted in more than 300 songs. And although touring constantly, YANNI’s heart also remains in studio with all the music he’s created of late. “I’ve been having fun,” he says. “What I've learned is when a song hits you, when something moves you to write, it’s an emotion. All of life comes together, and you have to follow it. I want to take my audiences on a journey. They don’t know what's coming next, but I promise it will be a pleasant surprise.”
