Jane Carmichael Everitt, Light Opera OK Co-Founder

by Jeff Martin


One of the great benefits of being an artist, especially in the realms of performance and the recording arts, is that your performances are captured, some in minds, others on tape. This creates a tangible, attainable form of immortality. Jane Carmichael Everitt, co-founder of Light Opera Oklahoma (LOOK), has attained that immortality not only through her work, but through the relationships she created along the way.

In a career that included performances in front of NFL crowds and even Dave Brubeck, Jane made the largest impact on her students at the University of Tulsa where she taught voice for 25 years. In this episode of Goodbye Tulsa, Eric Gibson, Artistic Director for LOOK, shares his thoughts and memories about his friend and mentor.
