On Thursday, July 14 and Friday, July 15 at 8 p.m. in Davies Symphony Hall, jazz trumpeter Chris Botti joins the Orchestra for two nights. Sarah Hicks conducts. Since the release of his 2004 critically acclaimed CD When I Fall in Love, Botti has become the largest selling American jazz instrumental artist. His ongoing association with PBS has led to four #1 jazz albums, as well as multiple Grammy® Awards. His Chris Botti in Boston CD and DVD features guest appearances by Sting, Josh Groban, Steven Tyler, Yo-Yo Ma, John Mayer, Katharine McPhee, Lucia Micarelli, and Sy Smith. Most recently, he performed for President Barack Obama and former Presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter and guests at The White House State Dinner, and in a February performance at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC he invited former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright onstage to play the drums.
