    Yanni: 25th Anniversary of "Live at Acropolis" at PPAC 

    Legendary performer and composer Yanni has announced that he will celebrate the 25th Anniversary of “Live At The Acropolis” with a world tour that will launch this spring in the United States.

    “Live at the Acropolis” was released in 1994 and is the first ever live album and concert video from the maestro. Recorded at the Herodes Atticus Theatre in Athens with the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra from London, the concert took a year and a half to complete. The album was mixed and produced by Yanni in his home studio and was made into a TV special that aired in the States on PBS. “Live at the Acropolis” became an incredible success and is the second best selling music video of all time.

    The show begins at 8 p.m.
