Location: FLATO Markham Theatre
171 Town Centre Blvd.
Protégé of Quincy Jones and David Foster, Andreas Varady is only 16 years old and has already made a name for himself in the world jazz circuit. Impressing critics and fans alike with his virtuosic musical skill, he has played some of the world’s top jazz festivals, including Bray Jazz Festival, Festival Django Reinhardt, Sligo Jazz Festival, Glasgow Jazz Festival, to name only a few.
Varady first picked up a guitar at four years old and began learning songs by ear. Since then he’s been unstoppable – from being the youngest headline performer (only 13 years old) at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club in London, UK, to releasing his first solo album
Questions in 2010. A true musical wunderkind he has often been compared to the great George Benson, a personal hero of his. This exceptional concert presentation is the perfect way to close the Theatre’s outstanding 30th season. Don’t miss it!
"This wunderkind Andreas Varady plays
much more in the vein of Wes or George
Benson, and on top of that, is highly
musical and responsive." ~Jazzwise
