Come experience “An Evening with Chris Botti,” a Westminster College Celebrity Series spectacular on Oct. 21 at 7:30 p.m. in Orr Auditorium.
Since the release of his 2004 critically acclaimed album, When I Fall In Love, Grammy award winner Chris Botti has become the largest-selling American instrumental artist. His success has crossed over to pop music audiences and his ongoing association with PBS has led to four #1 jazz albums and multiple gold and platinum records. Most recently, his latest album, Impressions, won a Grammy for “Best Pop Instrumental Album” at the 2013 55th Grammy Awards. Botti has performed worldwide and sold more than four million albums. He has a creative form of expression that begins in jazz and expands beyond the limits of any single genre.
Over the past three decades, Botti has recorded and performed with the best in music including Sting, Barbra Streisand, Tony Bennett, Lady Gaga, and Frank Sinatra to name a few. Hitting the road for as many as 300 days per year, the trumpeter has also performed with many of the finest symphonies and at some of the world's most prestigious venues from Carnegie Hall and the Hollywood Bowl to the Sydney Opera House and the Real Teatro di San Carlo in Italy.
Botti’s appearance at Westminster was made possible by the generosity of Giant Eagle, a leading supporter of the arts in the local community. Tickets start at $45.
