The Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra will provide a rich background of orchestral mood for Kenny G’s unmistakable saxophone as he plays favorite selections from his extensive catalog of albums when they take to the stage alongside this shining star in “An Evening with Kenny G” on Friday, April 8, 2016 and Saturday, April 9, 2016 at 8:00 pm at the Mead Theatre of the Schuster Center, Dayton, Ohio.

Kenny G’s signature lyrical sound has won him a huge following from the United States to China and made him the biggest-selling instrumentalist in the world. In a recording career that spans almost three decades and 23 albums, Grammy Award-winning saxophonist Kenny G has also produced seven platinum albums (G Force, Gravity, Duotones, Silhouette, Breathless, the Moment, Classics in the Key of G) and spans genres from jazz to R&B to Latin fusion, solidifying his reputation as the premier artist in contemporary jazz.

Since the early 80s, his combination of unparalleled instrumental chops and indelible melodies has resulted in sales of more than 75 million records worldwide (45 million in the U.S. alone) and more than a dozen climbs to the top of Billboard’s contemporary jazz chart.
