Jackie Evancho was the youngest solo artist ever to headline a special on the Great Performances series. The concert was taped in April 2011 at the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota, Florida, and was co-hosted by David Foster, who played the piano in the orchestra for many of the selections, while Conrad Tao played piano and violin in some selections.
Jackie Evancho performed nearly the same songs as those on the Dream With Me CD for her first solo concert televised special, which first aired in June 2011 on PBS stations ('The Prayer' was omitted, but 'Dark Waltz' and 'Mi Mancherai' were added). The program was part of the PBS Great Performances series, co-produced by SYCO/Columbia. It was frequently rebroadcast during 2011, and by early August 2011, the special had been broadcast nearly 2,000 times. It became one of the most viewed specials in the 38-year-history of the Great Performances series and raised record amounts of money for PBS stations. The special continued to be shown into 2013.
The concert was recorded inside and on the grounds of the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota, Florida, which includes the stunning mansion Ca' d'Zan, known as the last of the Gilded Age mansions built in America. Ringling was the impresario behind the iconic Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus. "This is a big, beautiful place," said Jackie after she toured the grounds. 'My favorite part is the Peter Paul Rubens art gallery', where she performed the haunting song 'Dark Waltz' accompanied only by Foster on piano and Conrad Tao on violin and surrounded by four of Ruben's largest, and most striking, canvases.
John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota, a great scene for a perfect concert.
Jackie was 11 years old when the DVD was released, but she was only 10 years old when it was recorded.
