Check out the article in Nuvo magazine by Eric Friesen Top Brass

This multi award winning trumpeter will perform at the Mann Center for one performance only, with the incomparable Philadelphia Orchestra June 17th.

Since the release of his 2004 critically acclaimed CD "When I Fall in Love," Chris Botti (pronounced boat-tee) has become the largest selling American instrumental artist.  Over the past three decades, he has recorded and performed with music's best:  Paul Simon, Sting, Yo-Yo Ma, Joni Mitchell, Josh Groban, John Mayer, Gladys Knight, Joshua Bell, Jill Scott and Aerosmith's Steven Tyler.

Eric Friesen says in Nuvo Magazine, He¹ll play through the tune for the First time slowly, savouring its plaintive optimism, caressing it with his rich, opulent sound but never losing the beat, embellishing the simple tune just enough to make it fresh. Then the trumpet sound bites, and the real jazz soul of Chris Botti emerges.

On stage with the Philadelphia Orchestra, Chris will have his dynamic all-star band and special guests, violinist Lucia Micarelli and vocalist, Sy Smith.

You will not want to miss the sophisticated elegance and sensuality of Chris Botti along with the incomparable Philadelphia Orchestra.
