Performing one of jazz's most sought-after live concerts, Jonathan Dely leads his All-Star Band across the United States, from venues including Lincoln Center in New York to the NAMM Show in Los Angeles. Dely’s live show is as dynamic and energetic as it is cool and romantic. Expect a cross-genre performance in the vein of Chris Botti that is sure to delight audiences of all ages and musical tastes.
Dely graduated with honors from Williams College. After declining a full-time investment banking position on Wall Street, Dely obtained his Master’s on scholarship at Manhattan School of Music and earned finalist honors in the National Trumpet Competition, the International Trumpet Guild Jazz Competition, and the Yamaha Young Performing Artist Competition, and has in short time become a rising star jazz artist.
Dely’s journey from Wall Street to the stage is the subject of the 2023 film “Goodbye Jonathan’s Soul,” directed by legendary filmmaker Bob Giraldi and featuring Jonathan as lead actor and composer. This short film will open the performance on the Mainstage.
“To watch Jonathan on stage balance his identity as both a performing artist and a former Wall Streeter is like watching a coming of age story in concert. He is an extraordinary talent and a remarkable young man. A star in the making.”
