I remember Amy Grant on the radio a lot when I was in college. If you want to reminisce, or simply enjoy an evening of good music, Pacific Symphony’s Pops season is going to launch with a bang with the American music icon opening on Oct 14th for a two night stint at Segerstrom Concert Hall.
The six-time Grammy Award winner has enjoyed a career spanning more than 30 years, stretching from her roots in gospel music to leading pop star, songwriter, television personality and philanthropist.
Known as “America’s Sweetheart” and admired for her crossover music—from contemporary Christian to mainstream — Grant has produced numerous hits such as “Baby Baby,” “Every Heartbeat,” “That’s What Love is For,” “I Will Remember You,” “Lead Me On,” “El Shaddai” and more. She now brings her soothing voice, engaging personality and talent for erasing the lines between genres to the Symphony for a perfect night out that includes an exciting mix of music from her latest musical endeavors to her greatest hits.
Led by Principal Pops Conductor Richard Kaufman, Pops opening weekend opens with a first half dedicated to music by the incomparable Henry Mancini, including some of his greatest hits, “Pink Panther,” “Charade,” “Moon River” and “Peter Gunn.”
The concert takes place on Friday, October 14th to Saturday, October 15th, at 8pm, in the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall.
Tickets are $35-$167, ($195 Box Circle).
