Former Miss America to perform at Oklahoma Christian
Former Miss America Susan Powell will perform at Oklahoma Christian University with the Oklahoma Community Orchestra on Tuesday, Oct. 16 at 7:30 p.m.
Powell’s performance and the world premiere of a fanfare by Oklahoma composer Callen Clarke highlight the opening concert of the orchestra’s 2012-13 season, to be held in OC’s Hardeman Auditorium.
Since her year as Miss America in 1981, Powell has performed in theatres, opera houses and concert halls all over the world. She also hosted “Home Matters,” which ran for 12 seasons on the Discovery Channel.
New York audiences have seen the Oklahoma native as Alcamene in “Olympus On My Mind” and as Johanna in Harold Prince’s production of “Sweeney Todd” at the New York City Opera. She made her operatic debut as Adele in “Die Fledermaus” with the Seattle Opera and returned the following season as Micaela in “Carmen.”
In addition to sharing the stage with Powell, the orchestra will perform additional selections at the Oct. 16 concert, including Howard Hanson’s Second Symphony (the Romantic), Don Gillis’ Short Overture to an Unwritten Opera, and Callen Clarke’s Spark.
