Ponca City Now - March 7, 2014 11:48 am

The Ponca City Arts and Humanities Council is providing a unique experience tonight.

The OSU Symphony Orchestra and Chorale will be at the Hutchins Memorial Auditorium.

Leslie Schauvliege, Ponca City Arts and Humanities Council director said the real show stopper is Leonna Mitchell.

“The world famous Leonna Mitchell, who is an opera singer, who sang for 18 years with the Metropolitan Opera in New York City is going to be performing as one of the four soloist, I believe that will be performing that night," Schauvliege said. "It’s really quite something to see someone of her caliber and her background here in Ponca City.”

The concert is free.

Doors open at 5:30 and the concert begins at 7:30.

Schauvliege said this is the second time the Symphony Orchestra and Chorale has made its way to Ponca City.

“Two years ago actually, in March of 2012 we had the OSU Symphony Orchestra and Chorale again, and they were absolutely wonderful," Schauvliege said. "We had people that left the concert that evening saying this was the best thing they have ever seen in Ponca City. I mean truly, and also what’s also so neat about it is they are around 200 student musician and vocalist that come from OSU that perform that night.”

No tickets are required to attend.

The concert will last about one-hour.
