Don’t miss internationally-acclaimed countertenor Terry Barber as he performs a special concert in Manistee Friday, August 2 to benefit The Ramsdell Regional Center for the Arts and Michigan Legacy Art Park, two leading nonprofit arts organizations in Northern Michigan. 


With an extraordinarily broad vocal range and natural fluency in many musical styles, 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 figures.

Barber’s playlist will include selections from Queen, Hamilton, Leonard Cohen, Cats, Les Miserables, Phantom of the Opera, Jesus Christ Superstar, Candide, Requiem and Irish, American, French and Australian folk songs. He will be accompanied by Sheryl Iott of Interlochen Center for the Arts and Chas Helge from Charlevoix Circle of Arts Dorothy Gerber Strings program.

“I’m so pleased to be sharing audience favorites from several of my tours in Manistee,” Barber says. “My personal mission always includes support of the arts so I’m especially proud to be involved in the success of these great organizations in the state where I was born.”
