Master Class/Meet the Artist - Chris Botti

On July 18, 2012, The Mann Center welcomed world-renowned trumpeter Chris Botti to a Master Class/Meet the Artist at the Philadelphia Clef Club of Jazz and Performing Arts. Approximately 50 students of all ages from both the Clef Club’s summer camp and Creative Arts High School in Camden, NJ performed three compositions for Botti. After each performance, Botti gave detailed feedback on each song in hopes of educating and inspiring the students. Following those performances, Botti opened the floor for any questions the students had for him. Concluding the Meet the Artist session, Botti joined some of the very talented students on stage with his trumpet in hand for a group performance. Each student, along with Botti, demonstrated their talents by performing their own solos with various levels of improvisation with their mastered instrument. By the end of this enlightening Meet the Artist session, it was undeniable the impact Botti’s encouraging words had on the students and all that attended that day.
