Blast From The Past: Yanni and Rita Moreno

Blast From The Past: Yanni and Rita Moreno

Yanni and Genevieve Rafter Keddy

From my days at  WLIW TV21, Yanni, the Greek composer, keyboardist, pianist, and music producer who received international recognition by producing concerts at historic monuments and by producing videos that were broadcast on public television. His breakthrough concert, Live at the Acropolis, yielded the second best-selling music concert video of all time.

At least sixteen of Yanni’s albums have peaked at No. 1 in Billboard’s “Top New Age Album” category, and two albums (Dare to Dream and In My Time) received Grammy Award nominations.
