Jazz Musician Heralds Springtime

A

nchorage jazz fans have marked their calendars for Chris Botti in concert set for April 21. The Grammy Award-winner and trumpeter will perform at 7:30 p.m. at the Alaska Center for the Performing Arts Atwood Concert Hall. Botti previously performed in Anchorage Nov. 15, 2008, to a sold-out crowd, said Jason Grenn, marketing director for the Anchorage Concert Association. The success of that show prompted concert promoters to book Botti for another Anchorage performance. Botti, one of America’s top-selling jazz instrumentalists, has performed with symphonies around the world and with icons such as Sting, Andrea Bocelli, Paul Simon and Steven Tyler. Botti has worked with PBS to produce special performances and subsequent CDs, and has performed at illustrious events, including the World Series and the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony. Botti, as well as less renowned jazz musicians, always seem to hit the right note with Alaskan audiences. “People really appreciate it when we bring top jazz groups up,” Grenn said. “People are pretty in tune to jazz up here.” For more information, visit www.anchorageconcerts.org or to purchase tickets, visit www.alaskapac.centertix.net. •••
