Yanni could be considered the world’s most popular musical diplomat. Stripping his music of the burden of language, the Greek-born showman’s fiery, pop-infused instrumental compositions and romantic ballads have sold millions and transcended borders across the globe. His mighty melodies have been heard in every Olympic television broadcast since 1988, and his 1994 Live at the Acropolis video remains one of the best-selling music videos of all time. Throughout the summer, the gregarious tunesmith embarks on a U.S. tour to tout his 19th studio album, Truth of Touch. Like a New Age Mountain Dew commercial, Yanni and his multinational orchestra will take adult-contemporary music to the extreme in their bounding performance. The frontman attacks his banks of keyboards and pianos as the brass, string, and harp sections propel sonic elegiacs into the audience. To complement the twinkling stardust, a kaleidoscopic light show further illuminates the stage as Yanni and company play brand-new selections mixed with decades' worth of classic hits, such as the sylvan, flute-tinged “Nightingale.”
Mother Nature's mature pine trees and emerald expanses warmly embrace the Saratoga Performing Arts Center. Nestled within 2,400 acres of park preserves, the center is surrounded by hiking trails, natural mineral springs, and geysers that rise and fall with audience applause.
