Since the release of his 2004 critically acclaimed CD “When I Fall in Love,” Grammy Award-winning trumpeter Chris Botti has become a top-selling American instrumental artist. Performing worldwide and selling more than four million albums, Botti has found a form of creative expression that begins in jazz and expands beyond the limits of any single genre.

Performing well-known hits like “The Look of Love,” “The Very Thought of You,” “Cinema Paradiso” and “When I Fall in Love,” Botti is joined on stage by vocalists Sy Smith and Veronica Swift, violinist Caroline Campbell and organist Joey DeFrancesco, along with band members: pianist Taylor Eigsti, guitarist Leonardo Amuedo, Reggie Hamilton on bass, keyboardist Rachel Eckroth and Lee Pearson on drums. Equally at home in all musical genres, Botti guides the audience through a seamless and unforgettable live concert experience.
