Christian Howes is one of the world’s most acclaimed jazz violinists and on Friday, Oct. 16 he will bring his edgy and contemporary style to Central Washington University. Combining rock, Americana, neo-soul, classical and modern jazz, Howes’ mastery of the electric violin will offer an unforgettable concert experience. The show will be at 7 p.m. in the CWU McIntyre Music Building Concert Hall and cost of attendance is $12 for general admission and $7 for seniors, children and CWU students.
As an educator, performer and composer at the intersection of classical music, jazz and the participatory culture, Howes is widely regarded as a thought leader. He was nominated for the Jazz Journalists Association’s 2011 “Violinist Of The Year,” voted among the 2012 Jazz Times top three violinists and in June 2014 he toured Ukraine as a cultural ambassador at the invitation of the U.S. Embassy. Howes was also named the Keynote Performer and Clinician at the 2015 American String Teachers Association national conference.
