Posted: Thursday, September 27, 2012 10:00 pm
Barber, countertenor su-perstar and formerly the “the jewel in Chanticleer’s crown,” will perform a diverse program of classical and popular favorites at the FCNB Auditorium on the campus of Dyersburg State Community College at 7:30 p.m.
He has established himself on the international stage as a distinguished vocalist and entertainer, demonstrating a broad vocal and stylistic range. His solo work includes appearances at the Metropolitan Opera, New York City Opera, Spoleto Festival and a feature soloist performance at Moscow’s Svetlanov Hall at the specific request of composer Georgs Pelecis. Barber has recorded a multitude of recordings on all major classical labels, as well as his own rEvolv imprint. In 2009, Barber founded “Artist for a Cause,” a non-profit corporation created to organize collaborations between artists and the charities they support.
Pending available seating, Dyersburg State Community College students will be admitted free beginning at 7:30 p.m.
