New York-based trombonist, singer and multi-instrumentalist.
Jazz Showcase is a signature event of the North Central Performing Arts program. This is a fantastic evening of jazz music provided by NCHS’s jazz music groups in a relaxed atmosphere. It is also a fundraising event for the NCHS Band Parents Organization to support NCHS bands.
Christopher is trombonist, singer, and multi-instrumentalist based outside of NYC, but more accurately based on the internet. He has been playing piano since he was 6 years old, trombone since he was 10, and he has been composing/arranging sine he was 12.
Christopher is best known for his all-trombone arrangements of popular songs. His YouTube Channel has been gaining popularity since the spring of 2014 when a cover of Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” where Christopher uses a looping station to compose the song on the spot went viral. His videos have amassed over 17 million views and a following of over 100,000 subscribers. In April of 2014, Christopher independently released his first cover album, Breakthrough, which was followed by his Christmas album, Smiling’s My Favorite. More recently, Christopher released an original pop album called Half Man, Half Machine which mixes acoustic sounds with electronic instruments.
