Ok really? You can bring a glass of wine into the shows at Baltimore's 1st Mariner Arena? The night was starting off great. And that wine might be what lead to this...
This Yanni show is not at all about Yanni. It seems to have been created to highlight all the other musicians and performers on the tour. Of course Yanni himself is a great host for the evening, but the real stars are the four new vocalists (Chloe, Leslie Mills, Ender Thomas, Nathan Pacheco) and the incredible musicians including the violinists, the percussion and drummer, the classical guitarist, and the harpist.
Here are the highlights from the Yanni Voices concert in Baltimore as I experienced them.
Ender Thomas came out in a hot pink shirt and tight pants and the Grandma sitting next to us whipped out her binoculars. No Joke. I can only imagine what she was focused on....can you?
Leslie Mills' satin vocals and fabulous wardrobe.
Dueling drums....honestly, amazing.
Chloe performed Change and I swear she was really crying.
A family of young girls (ages 12 to about 7) sitting right in front of us completely enjoying the concert!
Classic Baltimore moment...the mom of the girls comes shuffling through mid-song with nachos and a 20 oz beer (see - loving the 1st Mariner Arena!)
Dueling violins - insane
Crazy Brazilian harp thing....doubly insane!
Nathan Pacheco gets a standing ovation and we learned later on that his family was in the audience.
