About The Event
BYO, Chair and Picnic and make a EVENING of it!
East Coast musician Chris Colaneri is a multifaceted percussionist who is as comfortable playing classical music as he is playing island steelpan. Chris has played with Josh Groban for his 2020 residency at Radio City Music Hall, Symphonic Jerry Garcia featuring Warren Haynes (PNC Arts Center and Central Park SummerStage) and 90’s boy band, Hanson (Orpheum Theater, Boston, MA). Orchestral endeavors have taken him to Spain, France, Israel, and Jordan where he performed for many radio and television shows as well as gave a command performance for the Queen of Jordan.
As a steelpan, vibist, marimbist, and Latin percussion performer, Chris has led his own jazz quartet, CCQ, since 1997. This ensemble has given featured performances at the New Jersey Performing Art Center, various jazz clubs, hotels, private corporate and political functions, and jazz festivals throughout New York and New Jersey. Chris also works several times a week as a steelpan artist for Bahama Breeze.
The concert will be livestreamed on the Friends of Whittemore Facebook page for those who cannot attend.
