Jackie Evancho Joins Pacific Symphony For A Holiday Treat In Annual Christmas Pops Concert

Jackie Evancho Joins Pacific Symphony For A Holiday Treat In Annual Christmas Pops Concert

After becoming a sensation on YouTube, Jackie Evancho, went on to audition for America's Got Talent, sweeping the competion at only 10 years old and capturing the hearts of millions.This early success propelled her career to what it is today at just age 18. Among her six albums, she has produced two Christmas albums, "Heavenly Christmas" and "Someday at Christmas," including a performance during the lighitng of the National Christams Tree in Washington, D.C. a few years ago and a special Christmas performance back on the America's Got Talent stage in 2016.

However, this holiday season, she will sing merry and bright tunes as she joins Pacific Symphony in their annual Christmas Pops concert on December 14-15 in the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall with Symphony favorite Albert-George Schram as guest conductor and featuring Richard Cook on the bagpipes. Jackie will be performing hits from her last Christmas album, the holiday classics you know and love, as well as Broadway tunes from what Evancho calls the "New American Songbook."

This concert is part of Pacific Symphony's 2018-19 Pops, a series of five concerts that celebrates "popular music's most enduring favorites," sponsored by The Westin, PBS SoCal, and K-Earth 101. Single tickets for "Christmas with Jackie Evancho" begin at $46. For more information or to purchase tickets call (714) 755-5799 or visit the website, www.PacificSymphony.org.

As an American Crossover singer who sings both opera and pop, Jackie is the youngest solo artist to obtain a platinum status reaching in the top five in the UK and then in the US with her first full-length album, "O Holy Night" that sold a quarter of a million in the first week. Her success of 3 million of gold and platinum albums sold, with all of her seven albums hitting number one on the Billboard Classical chart and being the youngest solo artist to perform in Lincoln Center has led her to appear twice on Billboard's list of "music-movers-and-shakers under the age of 21." The momentum of "O Holy Night" later propelled the success of her first album under Sony Music, "Dream with Me" produced by David Foster. With what started as a child's a fascination of "Phantom of the Opera," in addition to her solo music and the duets with Tony Bennett, Plácido Domingo, Barbra Streisand, Chris Botti and Joshua Bell, she has headlined three PBS specials and appeared in the film "The Company We Keep" requested by her co-star Robert Redford in 2013. Evancho is currently working on her newest and eighth album, after releasing her latest album "Two Hearts" a little more than a year ago. While "Two Hearts" merges Jackie's love of pop hits and classical crossover Italian songs, her new album will feature contemporary songs from "Hamilton," "Dear Evan Hansen," "Waitress," "Greatest Showman," "Wicked," "Rent," and "Spring Awakening." While in between touring and recording, Evancho is continuing her education and splitting her time between being immersed in the creative community in New York and be surrounded by her family in Pittsburgh.
