He's the picture of a band-leading jazz trumpeter--dashing and dressed to the nines. But Chris Botti has the chops to back up the look. He's a master artist, a musician with dozens of hit recordings under his belt, and a consummate performer who has played with greats like Frank Sinatra, Paul Simon, Joni Mitchell, and Joshua Bell.
"With his romantic bent and beautifully honed technique, this chart-topping trumpeter never has a problem wooing audiences with a classic pop melody. But Chris Botti has a lot more to offer…" says the Washington Post. He'll put it all out there when he joins conductor Steven Reineke and the NSO Pops for a wide-ranging evening of pop, jazz, and classical music.
