Artists and Activities
Classical for Everyone is an entertainment-driven vocal performance sung in the baritone, tenor, alto, and soprano range by one international, rare countertenor vocalist. Repertoire has been chosen based on two scenarios: 1) crowd-pleasing familiar repertoire (like "La Donne E Mobile," "Maria," "The Habanera," "Bring Him Home," and Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah") and 2) art that anyone can be entertained by on the first listening, such as “Life if Happiness Indeed” by Bernstein, where Barber plays three characters in one song. A past member of the Grammy winning vocal group, Chanticleer, Barber has entertained audiences internationally at the world’s best venues, has recorded with a variety of artists from Madonna to the London Philharmonic, and was the second most requested artist from a recent national showcase, with almost 50 contracts.
Barber says, "Everyone loves classical music - they just don't know it yet! Let's tear down the walls of classical etiquette and invite the masses in to connect with classically-driven art! I joke with the audience, share information that will help them get closer to the art, elicit their involvement, and use my vocal range to keep them guessing. The highest compliments I receive from classical enthusiasts and new "converts" include 'Terry Makes Classical, Fun!' and 'The most entertaining classical performance we've had!'”
