Thursday, November 8, 7pm
Registration required (858) 459-0831. Tickets available for purchase below.
Take a fascinating look at life backstage with dynamic piano personality, Jacquelyne Silver, as she spins the magical story of her life as an artist, from the banks of the Mississippi in St. Louis to the high-powered city of New York. A child prodigy, Jacqui began the piano at the age of 3, soloed with the St. Louis Symphony at 8, and went on to a full scholarship to the prestigious Juilliard School of Music at 15.
What was it like to be a young woman at a time when women were not welcome on the stage, and the glass ceiling seemed impenetrable? Jacqui will share her extraordinary life story—a story of fortitude and spunk. She’ll share her joy of music from Ragtime to Rachmaninoff, from Brahms to Broadway—working with such luminaries as Leonard Bernstein, Benny Goodman, Tony Randall, Luciano Pavarotti, Dame Joan Sutherland and Marilyn Horne. Listen and sing to the music of My Fair Lady, Oklahoma, Fiddler on the Roof, Showboat, West Side Story, and many, many more!
“Immense energy and excitement—a terrific performance!” …THE NEW YORK TIMES
“Witty, dynamic and wonderfully entertaining!” …THE WALL STREET JOURNAL
