Yanni To Perform In San Francisco and San Jose

Updated on April 29, 2011

World renowned pianist, keyboardist, and composer Yanni is soon to arrive in the Bay Area for part of his 2011 North American tour which includes forty performances throughout several parts of the U.S. as well as Canada, Mexico, and Panama.

Yanni is well known for inspirational pieces which often include a blend of vocal and instrumental themes as well as electronic beats. When put together, these sounds create a type of music that his fans have described as new age, although Yanni himself prefers the term “contemporary instrumental”.
