Katherine Jenkins to Perform Summer Concert at Music Pier

One of Great Britain’s all-time favorite singers, Katherine Jenkins, will join the Ocean City Pops Orchestra for a special concert on Aug. 11, and tickets go on sale starting at 9 a.m. Friday (Feb. 8).

Jenkins was officially crowned the No. 1 selling “Classical Music Artist of the Last 25 Years” by Classic FM. She made chart history when her last album, “Celebration,” became her 12th UK Classical No.1 album in 12 years. These record-breaking achievements cemented her position as the world’s most prolific artist in UK Classical chart history.

Jenkins most recently released “Guiding Light,” her 13th and most personal album yet. For her, the new album represents the culmination of a deeply emotional journey that began when her beloved father, Selwyn, died and when she became a mother.

The show is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 11 at the Ocean City Music Pier (Boardwalk at Moorlyn Terrace). Tickets are $40 to $75 and will be available starting Feb. 8 at, by calling 609-399-6111 or at the welcome centers at City Hall (861 Asbury Avenue), the Roy Gillian Welcome Center on the Rt. 52 causeway and the municipal building at 46th Street and West Avenue.
