WAUKEGAN — The Lake County Community Concert Association and Live On Stage, Inc., will present countertenor Terry Barber in concert in a diverse program of classical and popular favorites Sept. 15 at 3 p.m. at the Orlin Trapp Auditorium at Waukegan High School, 2325 Brookside Ave.
Single tickets are available ahead of the performance by calling Donna at (847) 244-7465 or at the auditorium the night of the performance for $30 each.
Terry Barber, an alumnus of Grammy Award-winning vocal ensemble Chanticleer, 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. Barber has recorded a multitude of recordings on all major classical labels, as well as his own rEvolv imprint.
In 2009, he founded “Artist for a Cause,” a non-profit corporation created to organize collaborations between artists and the charities they support.
The Lake County Community Concert Association was established in 1952. Community Concert’s goal remains as true today as it was then, “to offer every man, woman and child in this country the opportunity to experience the magic of live performance by bringing artists and audiences together.”
LCCCA is a non-profit educational organization operated by a local board of volunteers solely for the purpose of bringing the best in live performance at a reasonable cost to members.
