Being in Demand: Cammy Watkins
Who doesn’t want to be “in demand”? Being in demand is a goal for every artist or performer I know. It’s wonderful to produce great work, create fantastic art, and to enjoy your life’s work, but being in demand is what pays the bills. Cammy Watkins, Opera Omaha’s Production Coordinator and chorus member, is in demand.
Cammy’s day-to-day responsibilities with Opera Omaha include managing the young professional’s group, Bravo Club, making contractual and travel arrangements for local and visiting artists, and providing invaluable management support to the production department in many other ways. When she is not facilitating great opera from the administrative and production side of the scene, she is on stage performing. 2012 marks Cammy’s 8th year as a member of the Opera Omaha chorus. She also performs with the Omaha Symphony as part of their annual Christmas with the Symphony production. In addition to all of that, she regularly performs as a soloist at church.
If you are fortunate enough to be a teacher bringing kids to the Omaha Symphony’s Carnegie Hall LINK UP event this week on Wednesday, March 14 or Thursday, March 15, you can see Cammy perform live at the Holland Performing Arts Center. If not, you can see her as part of the Opera Omaha chorus in our April 13 and 15 production of Gilbert & Sullivan’s The Mikado. Don’t miss seeing this vibrant and talented Omaha native in action. Cammy Watkins is in demand. Get your tickets today!
To purchase tickets to Opera Omaha’s production of The Mikado, go online at Ticket Omaha or call 402-345-0606. More information about the Omaha Symphony’s Carnegie Hall LINK UP event is below. Registration is closed for that event.
