Petula Clark to Appear with ONU Symphony Orchestra
World-renowned vocalist Petula Clark, backed by the Ohio Northern University Symphony Orchestra, will be performing on Saturday, May 12, at the Freed Center for the Performing Arts.
Clark first broke into the limelight during World War II, entertaining troops on the radio and in concert as a young girl. By the war's end, she had become "the British Shirley Temple" and was asked to sing at a national victory celebration at Trafalgar Square.
Since her early debut, Clark has gone on to record over 1,000 songs, appear in over 30 British and American films and sell over 68 million records.
The ONU Symphony Orchestra is under the baton of Lloyd Butler. Guest John Ashley will conduct for Clark.
Ticket information may be obtained by calling the Freed Center Box Office at (419) 772-1900 from noon to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday.
