May 12
12:30 AM 2012


Yanni, music's true world citizen and most popular contemporary composer, brings his 2012 North American Concert Tour to the Tennessee Performing Art Center's Andrew Jackson Hall tonight, May 12th at 8:00 p.m. 

Tickets range from $45 to $100 and are on sale now at the TPAC Box Office (505 Deaderick), by visiting www.tpac.org, or by calling(615) 782-4040

"Nashville is a music city that honors good music and composition, so we're proud to have an amazing musician like Yanni back again to perform in Andrew Jackson Hall," said Kathleen O'Brien, President and Chief Executive Office of TPAC. "His body of work is stellar, and he has a unique and beautiful style. He has a lot of fans here in Nashville who will enjoy this instrumental concert." 

This year saw Yanni, one of the music industry's most beloved artists, selling out major concert venues around the world including Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Asia.   With his world-class orchestra, he performed music from his latest album "Truth of Touch," now platinum in the Middle East, as well as classic concert favorites.

In October, Yanni was embraced and honored by the country of China when the government invited Yanni to adopt a panda during his time in Chengdu. Traditionally such privilege is reserved for countries rather than personalities. He affectionately named her "Santorini" in honor of the word's embedded Greek meaning, "Peace," for Greece's most beautiful island and after one of Yanni's most well known compositions.

On December 16th and 17th, Yanni performed and filmed two shows at Castillo San Felipe Del Morro, a recognized UNESCO Heritage Site, in Puerto Rico. The show aired exclusively in the United States on PBS and debuted March 3, 2012. The CD/DVD combo will be available exclusively through PBS pledge drives and a worldwide release on April 17, 2012 by Sony Music.

In addition to his television special in Puerto Rico, his string of U.S. dates will be followed by a South American tour in the fall of 2012, and a multi-city tour of China in 2013. As Yanni tours across the globe, his heartfelt and compelling music continues to touch both old and new fans.

In a separate announcement, Yanni has just debuted "Yanni-All Access" on the artist's official website, www.yanni.com. It is an exclusive behind the scenes view with highlights from Yanni's concert dates, cultural attractions, and the musician's message for premium fan club members.
