HEATHER CLANCY JOINS MISSISSIPPI OPERA'S A NIGHT AT THE TONYS!
Jackson, MS—Heather Clancy will be joining the lineup for Mississippi Opera’s A Night at the Tonys on Monday, January 18, at 7:30 at Duling Hall. Praised for her “fresh” delivery and “sonorous” performance of Bizet’s much loved opera Carmen, American Mezzo-soprano Heather Clancy has earned critical acclaim around the globe.
