– Christian Howes and Southern Exposure – Combining traditional jazz with latin influences, “Southern Exposure” is a unique performance full of life and passion. Features music off of Christian Howes’ album of the same name.
– Christian Howes and Bobby Floyd – A mentorship and friendship which began in 1996 in Columbus, Ohio has blossomed over 20-plus years into a deep musical connection. Their shows offer a mix of gospel, swing, and jazz that places inspiration over technique and makes listeners feel good. (Available in duo or quartet with bass and drums).
– Christian Howes, solo (unaccompanied) – Christian’s Youtube channel is closing in on one million views in large part due to the popularity of his solo videos. Using a loop pedal, Christian accompanies himself to demonstrate a “world of violin.” The family audiences adaptation shows Christian’s own musical development from age 5 to 45, progressing from “Twinkle,” to Bach, Paganini, bluegrass, jazz, and more.
– Christian Howes Solo with Orchestra (or string orchestra / big band) – Past performances include performing with the Muncie Symphony Orchestra (see video), Tucson Pops Orchestra, and more. Repertoire is available for all combinations or skill levels, both professional and with high schools and colleges.
– Christian and Camille Howes – Father-child pairing presenting classical, jazz, and folk music for family audiences. (Available in duo or quintet)
– Creative Strings Residencies – Collaborative concerts with MS/HS/College Orchestra programs.
