An Evening with Chris Botti

Grammy-winning jazz trumpeter Chris Botti is one of the most innovative figures in contemporary music. Deftly melodic and sparkling with romance, Botti’s high energy performances are at once intimate and extravagant. It is no surprise he is America’s top selling instrumentalist. Although clearly influenced by jazz artists like Miles Davis, Botti and his band explore many genres, shuffling through R&B, rock, and funk with Botti masterfully leading and improvising in his luminous, distinct style. 

  • You could say Botti is a DC insider. In 2011 he performed at The White House for a state dinner honoring the President of China.
  • Throughout the ’90s, Botti played extensively with Paul Simon and collaborated with Sting.
  • Botti was encouraged to pursue music from a young age by his mother, a concert pianist. 

This concert will run approximately 120 minutes with no intermission.
