After being asked to go to see Yanni, a strictly instrumental musician, I was a little skeptical on what exactly I was getting myself into, but of course, I agreed because I could not say no to my father. My expectations were that it would be a total snooze fest and I would be the only person under the age of 40. However, I realized that going into a concert with a negative attitude would not be fun for me nor my Dad, so I decided to go with an open mind. We arrived at the King Center at approximately 6:55 pm and the concert started at 7:30 pm. Our seats were the first row in the top section so we were looking down on the concert. By 7:35, the following musicians had arrived on stage: trombone player, trumpet player, a pianist, two drum players, a guitar player, three violin players, two cello players, and of course, Yanni. The concert lasted about 2 and a half hours and featured songs Yanni hasn’t played in 25 years in concert. Overall, I came out of the show a Yanni fan and 10/10 would recommend because it was super impressive even though it didn’t have words.
