The Orange County Performing Arts Center has tapped actress-singer Bernadette Peters, New York City Ballet principal dancers Heather Watts and Jack Soto and the New American Orchestra for an Oct. 3 concert marking the Center's first anniversary.
Dubbed "Encore," the concert will feature Peters singing pop songs and Broadway show tunes and Watts and Soto in a joint performance.
Jack Elliott will conduct the New American Orchestra in the world premiere of a new work. And two as-yet-unnamed young U.S. opera singers will sing duets and arias from well-known operas.
Priority tickets priced at $500, which includes admission to the concert and a backstage party with the performers, are being offered to the Center's major donors until Aug. 7.
