- What’s new with Yanni: a world tour and a new album, Inspirato
- What makes Inspirato different from his previous best-sellers: it features his greatest hits performed with renowned vocalists such as Placido Domingo, Renée Fleming, and Placido Domingo, Jr.
- In Yanni’s words: “This album is about all the loves in my life! Never losing faith in humanity & our incredible ability to overcome just about anything we are challenged with.”
- Where else you may have heard his mighty melodies lately: in every Olympic television broadcast since 1988 and that copy of Live at the Acropolis your DVD player refuses to eject
- Speaking of Live at the Acropolis: it remains one of the best-selling music videos of all time
- What to expect from his live show: the elation of watching him attack banks of keyboards and pianos as guest vocalists and the brass, string, and harp sections propel melodies into the audience; also some in-the-moment hair tossing
First, they handed over 25 cents. That’s all it cost for the audience to enter the Loew’s State—past rows of snappily dressed ushers, into a lobby filled with tapestries, murals, and marble beneath a Tiffany Chandelier originally designed for the Vanderbilt mansion. Barbershop quartets serenaded visitors from the Musician’s Gallery, while a Wurlitzer organ filled the air with the sounds of glockenspiel and horse hooves. But despite all of this grandeur, none of it was the main attraction. The real reason people flocked to the Loew’s was to sit back in one of its nearly 3,000 theatre seats, and take in a silent movie, or—post-1929—a “talkie.”
The films (not to mention the Vanderbilt chandelier) have since gone away, but thanks to some concerned citizens around Syracuse, the Loew’s—now called the Landmark—lives on to this very day. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the venue once again sparkles, and its star power has moved from the silver screen to the stage—Tony Bennett, Bob Dylan, Jerry Seinfeld, Celtic Woman, and the performers of So You Think You Can Dance have all trod the boards and taken naps under the trapdoor of the legendary stage.
