Awakening: Live in Concert

Jackie Evancho

 

Air date: Mon., Nov. 30, 9:30 pm

 

The angelic Jackie Evancho presents songs from her album, Awakening. Drawn from the best-known pieces from the classical canon, along with uplifting sacred music, Broadway tunes and pop songs, Jackie’s astoundingly beautiful young voice soars in the magnificent setting of Longwood Gardens Open Air Theatre, nestled among more than 1,000 acres of gardens, woodlands and meadows in Brandywine Creek Valley in Pennsylvania, the singer’s home state. Broadway star Cheyenne Jackson joins Jackie on a number of duets, including “Think of Me” from Phantom of the Opera. Other songs include: “The Rains of Castamere” (theme from Game of Thrones), “Nessun Dorma,” and “With or Without You.”
