The pre-teen classical singer performed with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra at Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre in Alpharetta.
I learned something valuable about myself at the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra summer season opening concert at Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre Sunday. My patience runs out after 2 hours. The concert, with classicial singer Jackie Evancho joining the orchestra, and newcomer Josh Page as well. I think. But two songs into the concert, it was always the same thing. Ms. Evancho, now 12-years-old, was discovered by most of the United States through the America's Got Talent TV show competition. On Sunday night, she performed many of the songs from her CD, "Dream With Me," plus other songs which showcased her talent. It's incredible that such a young, tiny performer can have such a big voice, and that was clearly on display when she was on stage at …

It's mid-afternoon just a day and a half before Christmas and you still haven't found a gift for everyone, have you? So how about some concert tickets for next season at Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre? As a stocking stuffer, the Project 9-6-1 Cinco Party offers very inexpensive tickets for lawn seating. The " Stocking Stuffer Lawn Discount" is just $9.61 per ticket–though the fees bring the actual price up to $14.91. Of course there's a little catch in that the lineup of artists won't be announced until next year. The amphitheater is the summer home of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, and for one concert in June, it will team with a rising pre-teen singer with a voice beyond her years. Jackie Evancho, who competed on "America's Got Talent," …
