Event Details

Enjoy an enchanting evening of an evening of carols, beloved classical songs and inspirational popular favorites with internationally acclaimed countertenor, Terry Barber.

Known for his extraordinarily rare vocal range, Barber has performed as a soloist with the Metropolitan Opera and the New York City Opera, and on some of the world’s most impressive stages including Carnegie Hall, London’s Queen Elizabeth Hall and Moscow’s Svetanlov Hall. A former member of the Grammy-winning ensemble Chanticleer, Barber’s voice can be heard on multiple recordings with a range of artists including Madonna, Jewel, Chaka Khan and Cyndi Lauper. Whether performing classical or popular favorites, he crafts what the Los Angeles Times calls “performances of great vitality and verve.”

Barber also mentors young artists through his nonprofit, Artists for a Cause Inc. ( A4AC.org ). The Palm City-based organization helps visual and performing artists use their talents for community improvement.

Community members are invited to observe Barber as he leads a vocal master class with student musicians. The 3 p.m. event on December 4 will take place in the Pealer Recital Hall. Space is limited to 50 observers and reservations are required; contact ces@frostburg.edu for reservations.
