CES presents Terry Barber, Countertenor in Christmas Presence

CES at FSU to Host International Countertenor Terry Barber in “Christmas Presence”

Enjoy an enchanting evening of carols, beloved classical songs and inspirational popular favorites when the Cultural Events Series at Frostburg State University presents internationally acclaimed countertenor Terry Barber in “Christmas Presence.” The performance, sponsored by the Enordo “Moose” Arnone family, will take place Wednesday, Dec. 4, at 7:30 p.m. in the Pealer Recital Hall of FSU’s Woodward D. Pealer Performing Arts Center.

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 organization, Artists for a Cause (A4AC). The organization, based in Palm City, Fla., 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 Dec. 4 will take place in Pealer Recital Hall. Space is limited and reservations are requested; contact ces@frostburg.edu for reservations. The workshop is sponsored by Gonzaga Health as part of the CES Arts for Enrichment series.

Performance tickets are $28 for adults and $25.20 for youth under 18. Military, package and group discount rates are also available.
