Yanni Spotlights His Talented Musicians

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.
