Pop opera superstar Katherine Jenkins performs with Pacific Symphony for Valentine’s Day weekend

Welsh superstar Katherine Jenkins received her OBE (Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) from Prince Charles at The Queen’s residence Buckingham Palace in 2014 and in June of this year, she sings at The Queen’s much-loved country retreat Sandringham Estate to mark the monarch’s historic Platinum Jubilee.

But first, the celebrated mezzo sings for Orange County audiences in an exclusive engagement with Pacific Symphony for Valentine’s Day weekend, Friday and Saturday, Feb. 11-12 at the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall in the Segerstrom Center for the Arts.

Cherished as one of Britain’s all-time favorite singers, in 2017 Jenkins was officially crowned “the biggest selling artist of the century” by Classic FM and made chart history when her last album Cinema Paradiso became her 14th UK Classical No.1 album, further cementing her position as the world’s most prolific artist in UK Classical chart history.

As one of the UK’s greatest musical exports, the multi-award-winning Jenkins has performed all over the world, for the Pope, for presidents and is a favorite of the Royal Family, having been invited to sing “God Save The Queen” at Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee, perform at Her Majesty’s Coronation concerts at Buckingham Palace and by special request at Her Majesty’s 90th birthday celebrations at Windsor Castle. She has embarked upon numerous sold-out tours and duetted with such names as Andrea Bocelli, José Carreras, Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, Bryn Terfel, Rolando Villazón and Il Divo, among others. She has wowed audiences and critics alike with her stellar performance as Julie Jordan in Lonny Price’s semi-staged production of Carousel at the London Coliseum in 2017 and has been featured on Dancing with the Stars. Pacific Symphony Pops favorite, David Foster commented: “The incredibly beautiful, incredibly talented and gorgeous Katharine Jenkins has a voice like an angel.”

For her Pacific Symphony debut, Jenkins has curated a program that includes favorite selections from her new studio album, Cinema Paradiso, which she describes as “all the best film musical themes that we know and love, all together on one recording.”

This Valentine’s Day weekend, treat your significant other, family members, friends and yourself to an evening with Britain’s most exciting crossover pop star.
