With this new special come all the elements that have made Jim Brickman synonymous with success at public television. A theme of friendship, healing and bridging cultures; a collection of quintessential Jim Brickman songs that marry gorgeous piano music with crossover classical: approachable, irresistible music with connections to classical, Celtic and Latin music. Powerful premium items include a DVD, CD combo and concert tickets.
Beautiful World is inspired by Jim's many travels and his memorable experiences of music bridging borders and cultural divides. This landmark special is a lush and intimate show shot in High Definition at Casino Niagara, just minutes from the Peace Bridge between the US and Canada at Niagara Falls, which was partially the inspiration for the special. Beautiful World will celebrate how music connects us and brings us all together.
To complement the special, Jim will conduct a holiday tour - 30+ cities in November and December - all of which can be mined for tickets as premium items. One of the most tireless entertainers around, Jim will be making special station appearances whenever possible and of course will provide a pledge event for those markets he can't get to personally.
Jim Brickman looks forward to his return to public television!

This emerging musical master started making ripples early. At the age of four, a violin was placed in David Klinkenberg’s small hands. He could barely hold the instrument. But after a couple of lessons, at the insistence of his parents, his small fingers found their place and his rosined bow found its groove. And just a few weeks later, little David was standing on a Chicago stage, sending a packed festival audience into orbit. From the classical to the kooky, David’s fiddle (as he likes to call it) generates a melodic mixed of inspiration, with a healthy dose of levity. From his featured performances with platinum recording artist Mark Schultz, to opening for internationally renowned pianist Jim Brickman
, David Klinkenberg’s diversity is undeniable. He is virtuoso violinist with a rare gift; he can stir the air and change the atmosphere.
