The Craig Yancey Quartet will be returning to perform on Friday, Jan. 11 at the Diamond Valley Arts Center (DVAC) located at 123 North Harvard Street in historic downtown Hemet.
Mr. Craig Yancey has been working as a professional musician and educator for more than 30 years. Yancey received both undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. His jazz and symphonic bands have consistently received superior rating and awards throughout his career. Using this experience, he is very active as an adjudicator/clinician for jazz, concert bands, solo and ensemble festivals, and featured guest artist throughout the Southwest.
Yancey’s professional musician credits as a saxophone and flute specialist include 27 years of playing music in Las Vegas at all types of music entertainment venues. He has performed with numerous artists including Donna Summer, Wayne Newton, The Four Tops and Lou Rawles, to name a few. Yancey has also played in the outstanding sellout Barnaby Finch concert a few weeks ago at the DVAC, so guests are likely to not be disappointed with this special evening.
