Chris Vadala with the Central New York Jazz Orchestra Apr. 24

SOURCE: Published: 2007-04-17
The CNY Jazz Arts Foundation will present Chris Vadala in concert with the CNY Jazz Orchestra on April 24th at 7:30PM in the Oncenter Carrier Theater. Tickets are on sale now at the Oncenter Box Office for $19.50, $23.50 and $26.50, with a $5 student discount (315-435-2121).

Mr. Vadala's appearance here supports the annual CRC Youth Jazz Festival, held throughout that day. The outstanding combo and big band from the day-long event will get a chance to perform with him as well.

Since his years touring with the legendary Chuck Mangione, having performed on every continent and garnering two Grammys, an Emmy, 5 Gold and 2 Platinum albums with this group, Chris has continued an eclectic career as performer, educator and pedagogue. You may have seen this Downbeat Poll finalist and National Endowment for the Arts Study Grant recipient here this past summer with Chuck at Jazz in the Square, regaling us with his now world-famous solos from those halcyon years. Still one of the country's busiest performers on jazz and classical stages, he is now Director of Jazz Studies and Saxophone Professor at the University of Maryland.
