FRIDAY, FEB. 23, 2018

Omaha Performing Arts presents soloist, composer and bandleader, saxophonist Chris Potter live at the 1200 Club in the Holland Performing Arts Center’s Scott Recital Hall at 8:00 PM Friday, February 23, 2018.

The 1200 Club is sponsored by C & A Industries and Mutual of Omaha. This performance is sponsored by Wiesman Development. Hilton Omaha is a hospitality sponsor.

Chris Potter has emerged as a leading light of his generation. His music showcases limitless creativity and a vibrant sense of swing. The New Yorker calls him, “A tenorist who can remind you of Joe Henderson at his craftiest, he employs his considerable technique in the service of music rather than spectacle.” Throughout his career, Potter has performed and recorded with artists as diverse as Steely Dan and Herbie Hancock, and has toured the world over with the Dave Holland Quintet, the Overtone Quartet, AZIZA, and the jazz-funk group Chris Potter’s Underground.

Tickets are $35 in advance or $40 on the night of the performance. Tickets are available at the Ticket Omaha* Box Office inside the Holland Performing Arts Center, online at or by calling 402.345.0606.
