Barber returns to the IOOF room
Music on the ditch
Music on the Divide will feature the extraordinarily talented vocalist Terry Barber on January 23 at 3 p.m. at Georgetown IOOF Hall. Those in the area who may have missed his brilliant concert in 2017 have the opportunity to thrill to Barber’s unique vocal range and theatrical artistry.
Barber, one of only perhaps 50 trained and successful countertenors in the world, is known for his extraordinary vocal and stylistic range. He will tell you that countertenors are men who can sing soprano and mezzo soprano. His reviews paint a far more gifted artist. After performing with the Grammy-winning group Chanticleer, Terry Barber has been a soloist in the world’s finest venues for the past 20 years, from the Metropolitan Opera and Carnegie Hall to Svetlanov Hall in Moscow. He has performed solo on recordings for all major record labels with a variety of artists from Madonna to the London Philharmonic. Its programs include selections from musical theatre, classical and popular genres and it performs in over a dozen different languages.
Barber is the founder of Artists for a Cause, a non-profit organization that since 2009 has supported hundreds of artists who use their talent for community betterment. As he did during his 2017 visit, Barber will give a performance talk to music students at Golden Sierra Junior-Senior High School on January 21 to demonstrate the possibilities of the human voice, dialogue about careers in music and inspire.
Doors will open at 2 p.m. for MOTD members and the public will be admitted from 2:30 p.m. Tickets will be available at the door: $20/adults, $5/students and children 5 and under are free . But, to secure a spot, people are encouraged to buy tickets online at Eventbrite.com.
