Women in Business to host ‘Your Performance on Stage’ luncheon

The Haywood Chamber of Commerce Women in Business group will host “Your Performance On Stage … Flourish, Engage, Inspire” from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Aug. 8 at the Gateway Club with Susan Belcher, the wife of Western Carolina University’s chancellor.

Belcher’s performing career spans opera, music, theatre and stage directing. Her extraordinary talents have been displayed on stages across the U.S. Belcher trained at the Chicago Lyric Opera Center for American Artists, where she debuted in the role of angel Zephon in the world premiere of Pendereski’s Paradise Lost. Her musical and straight theatre performances have allowed her to be levitated by magician David Copperfield and romanced by actor John Goodman.

Cost is $25 for Chamber Members and $30 for non-members. Registration required.
