Yanni Crashes Pre-Concert Fan Gathering in Chicago!

Look who surprised us at our pre-concert fan gathering at Claim Jumper Restaurant in Hoffman Estates, IL on July 30th 2016, Yanni & his daughter Krystal! We had about 50 fans at the gathering enjoying a wonderful dinner and conversation. They had no idea Yanni was going to stop by.

I met them outside the restaurant and when Yanni walked in the fans were in shock and so excited! Yanni was so gracious to take time for photos and he even took Krystal’s phone and turned the tables on the fans and photographed them.

Such a fantastic time! Expect the unexpected!

🙂

After our wonderful fan gathering we all drove over to the Sears Centre Arena and enjoyed a wonderful night of music. The music, the lighting, the clarity of the music in the arena was awesome! Yanni and his talented musicians put on an amazing concert. If you’ve never been to one of Yanni’s concert, please go to one. In our big group we had some people that have never seen Yanni live in concert. They walked out of the arena loving  his music!

Here are some videos I took at the concert. Enjoy!

Yanni taking some time with his drummer Charlie Adams who is originally from Joliet, IL and showing us some of his techniques. Be sure to get tickets to Yanni’s concert, you don’t want to miss Charlie’s 5 to 10 minute drum solo! www.Yanni.com/Tour

 

Yanni introduces you to another one of his amazing musicans, cellist Alexander (Sasha) Ziroff. Check out some of his techniques!

Love how Yanni always uses his hands to express himself.

 

One of the most talented violinist in the world, Samvel Yervinyan! When you see Samvel and Mary Simpson (another world class violinist) perform with Yanni on stage, it’s spectacular! ‪#‎YanniTour2016‬

This is so much fun to see Yanni doing master classes with his musicians. It’s a great way to learn about all the indivdual musicians.

Meet violinist Mary Simpson who puts such heart and soul in her performances.

Yanni and his longtime keyboardist and friend, Ming Freeman share a master class with all of you!

 I’ve always loved the percussion section of the orchestra. Love the sound! Here Yanni brings a master class to you with the very talented Yoel Del Sol.

Meet Jason Carder, another one of Yanni’s talented musicians!

Meet Gabriel Vivas, Yanni’s world class bassist and one of his back line boys.

Meet Lisa Lavie one of Yanni‘s world class vocalists. When not on tour with Yanni you can see Lisa during the holidays when she goes out on tour with Trans Siberian Orchestra.

Meet violinist Benedikt Brydern! @Yanni loves to spotlight his world class musicians. When on stage and off you can see the respect and the admiration they have for each other.

Yanni and the lovely Lauren Jelencovich give a master class on live vocal performance. Check out how high Lauren can reach those notes. Amazing!

Meet trombonist Dana Teboe! Dana has been with Yanni for 12 years touring all around the world. Check out their master class.
