International singer Terry Barber to perform at AC4TA

Fergus Falls — With an extraordinarily broad vocal range and natural fluency in a wide range of musical styles, Terry Barber is a performer in a class by himself. Accompanied by piano, Barber will be performing at A Center for the Arts’ Fergus Theatre, 124 W. Lincoln Ave., downtown Fergus Falls at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, April 24.

Tickets are $20 for adults and $6 for children/students. (Ticket price includes a $1sustainability fee.) Tickets can be purchased at our box office, by phone at 218-998-ARTS (2787) and online at www.FergusArts.org. This is the last performer of our 2014-15 Center Series: “Always Passionate, Never Boring!” However, individual tickets for this show are also available.

Terry Barber has been featured on some of the world’s most storied stages and has worked with many of the music industry’s most prestigious songwriters, composers and producers. Whether performing opera, jazz or popular favorites, he breathes new life into everything he sings and crafts what the Los Angeles Times calls “performances of great vitality and verve.”

As a member of the multiple Grammy-winning ensemble Chanticleer, Barber was called “…the jewel in Chanticleer’s crown…” With them, he worked his way through the repertoire, performing opera, classical, gospel, jazz and folk music in a dozen languages at over a hundred concerts around the globe. Barber made his debut at Carnegie Hall in 2004 singing the role of Orlovsky in “Die Fledermaus” with the National Chorale under Martin Josman.

In 2009, Barber founded Artist for a Cause, a non-profit corporation created to organize collaborations between artists and the charities they support.
