Back in Feburary, I attended the Blissdom conference, and while there I got a sneak peak at a new show that was being released to PBS and also going on tour. Yanni Voices brings together the amazing music of Yanni and four young voices that he discovered to sing his music. The result is a stunning show of powerful vocals, gentle ballads and Latin beats that make you want to dance.
After our preview, we got to meet two of the singers (and they were smart - they sent the two hot guys to the room full of women) and ask them questions. They explained how the show was a mix of old styles with a new twist. I anxiously awaited the CD, and I now enjoy listening to it when I want something soothing yet not sleep-inducing. My kids love to boogie to the upbeat songs.
I recently found out that the Yanni Voices tour will be coming to Columbus on Sunday, June 7, 2009 at Nationwide Arena. I've been given tickets to go see the show, and I've also been given a pair of tickets to give away to one lucky reader! Not only will the winner get two tickets to the 7pm performance, they'll also get backstage passes to meet the"voices" in person after the show!
To enter, leave a comment below telling me why you'd like to see the show. You don't have to be obsessed with Yanni - even saying you need a night out without the kids is a good reason! One entry per person, please. Be sure to leave an e-mail address so I can contact you if you win. And obviously you must live in or near the Columbus, OH area so you can attend the show.
Entries will be accepted until June 1, 2009 at 11:00pm EDT.
Good luck! I'll be giving a full report after the concert!
