Jackie Evancho
Friday 8:00 pm November 8, 2013


For one night only, prodigy and America's Got Talent favorite, Jackie Evancho, accompanied by the Symphony Silicon Valley, performs at the Flint Center for the Performing Arts in Cupertino!

Jackie was only 10 years old when she was discovered on the NBC reality show, and it's been gangbusters for her ever since. In just three years, Jackie's gorgeous soprano voice has won her millions of fans. Her recordings have dominated the music and DVD charts and her album, O Holy Night, became the year's #1 best-selling debut recording with more than one million copies sold.

Jackie's first studio album, Dream With Me, a mix of operatic arias, show tunes, and pop standards, was certified Gold after four weeks of release. Her third album, released last October, Songs from the Silver Screen, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Classical charts and at #7 on the Billboard Top 200 Album chart.

Jackie Evancho is in a class of her own -- a crossover soprano vocalist who is equally comfortable with Puccini or pop.

Beloved “Bugs Bunny on Broadway” Concert Series Celebrates its 20th Anniversary with the World Premiere of a New Sequel!

WARNER BROS. PRESENTS

BUGS BUNNY AT THE SYMPHONY II

Created and Conducted by George Daugherty

Bugs Bunny at the Symphony II celebrates the world’s most beloved Looney Tunes and their legendary stars projected on the big screen -- Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Elmer Fudd, Pepe Le Pew, Tweety, Sylvester, Wile E. Coyote, and Road Runner -- while their extraordinary original scores are played LIVE by your Symphony Silicon Valley.  Conducted and created by George Daugherty, this new concert (and its predecessors Bugs Bunny on Broadway and Bugs Bunny at the Symphony I) have delighted millions of concertgoers around the world, and spotlight acclaimed classics like What's Opera, Doc?, The Rabbit of Seville, and Rhapsody Rabbit, along side eye-popping brand new Warner Bros. 3D theatrical shorts I Tawt I Taw A Puddy Tat and Coyote Falls.  Plus special guest starts Tom and Jerry!

"Ever wonder what Saturday mornings in heaven might be like?  Maybe we’ll all stroll excitedly up the street to a grand auditorium built by brilliantly gifted architects where we can blissfully enjoy amusing cartoons displaying on a huge screen overhead while a real, live orchestra consisting of a multitude of talented classical musicians enchants our souls with all the beloved music and theme songs that have over the years become such an integral part of our personal and collective fiber.  Well, no need to wait until the afterlife; we can experience a little bit of heaven right here on earth in George Daugherty's utterly delightful concert Bugs Bunny at the Symphony. You can almost throw your stuffy, symphony ‘quiet’ rules out the window during this program (in part because you would never want to squelch the precious squeals of laughter coming from youngsters sprinkled throughout the audience).  This show is excellent for all ages, and is an utterly delightful way to introduce anyone to the symphony!"  The Flash List / Dallas Morning News.
