Pacific Symphony Welcomes Grammy Award-Winner LeAnn Rimes, Now thru 12/21

Spend Christmas with Pacific Symphony and LeAnn Rimes! It's a heartwarming holiday celebration when the orchestra welcomes to the stage the two-time Grammy Award-winning country/pop singer today-Saturday, Dec. 19-21, at 8 p.m., in the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall.

Rimes' sweet southern charm and big, rich voice embrace the holiday spirit as she performs songs from her Christmas album, "What a Wonderful World," plus fan favorites such as "How Do I Live" and "Can't Fight the Moonlight," all backed by the lush sounds of the Symphony. Breaking into the country music scene at age 13 with the release of the hit song and album, "Blue," Rimes became the youngest person to ever win a Grammy-and then went on to sell more than 37 million records worldwide. Now 31 and having just released her 14th album, "Spitfire," the former prodigy has become known for her easy banter between songs, warm smile and undeniable talent.

"[LeAnn] graciously bows her head in gratitude after each song and performs with such great élan that it elicits goosebumps," wrote Miami Living.

The evening's merriment also includes Principal Pops Conductor Richard Kaufman leading the orchestra in a selection of Christmas songs, plus, ventriloquist Jay Johnson and Bob deliver a delightful narration of "The Night Before Christmas." Tickets for "Christmas with LeAnn Rimes" are $35-$185; for more information or to purchase tickets, call (714) 755-5799 or visit www.PacificSymphony.org.

"Our Christmas concert will be extra special as LeAnn Rimes makes her Pacific Symphony Pops debut," says Kaufman, who celebrates his 23rd season with the Symphony.

"LeAnn will bring her own special magic to the performance, and I'm so happy that she will be joining us!

"This year on the first half, we are presenting wonderful arrangements by the great David Rose of two of the most well-known songs of Christmas: 'The Christmas Waltz' and 'The Christmas Song,' as well as his own composition 'The Christmas Tree.' And we always tell the story of 'The Night Before Christmas' with a guest narrator. This year, I am thrilled that Tony Award-winning Jay Johnson will be with us. Jay is one of the world's greatest ventriloquists. It will be a 'Night Before Christmas' to remember!"
