Yanni spent the past two years putting together the VOICES project that also included a highly-touted PBS Special YANNI VOICES: LIVE FROM THE FORUM AT ACAPULCO which kicked off March pledge, the YANNI VOICES CD and a Latin version YANNI VOCES which debuted at #2 on Billboard’s New Age chart, #5 on the Latin Pop chart and #13 on the Latin overall chart.

On April 10, 2009, Yanni makes his return to the performance stage after a 4-year hiatus. The YANNI VOICES tour will feature Yanni’s most popular fan favorites accompanied by dynamic visuals, dazzling choreography and show-stopping vocal performances by the four “Voices”.
