Yanni: Live at El Morro

Episode 1 of 1

On December 16th and 17th, 2011 Yanni, music's true world citizen and most popular contemporary composer, fulfilled a 20-year-old dream to perform at the beautiful and historic 16th-century Castillo San Felipe Del Morro in San Juan, Puerto Rico. During Friday night's performance, Mother Nature interfered when high winds and rainstorms blew through the castle, forcing the band to end the concert early for safety reasons. Saturday night concertgoers were treated to better weather and the production went off without a hitch, creating a truly memorable night. Backed by his world-renowned orchestra, the two sold-out concerts were filmed in HD for PBS. Yanni performed an awe-inspiring 2-hour set of favorites from throughout his career including "Felitsa," "Voyage," "The End of August," "The Rain Must Fall," "Nightingale," "One Man's Dream," and more. The performance at El Morro joins the famed Puerto Rican landmark - a recognized UNESCO Heritage Site - with other privileged sites such as the Taj Mahal in India, the Acropolis in Greece and the Forbidden City in China, that have played host to Yanni's world-renowned performances.
