One of Broadway’s all-time greatest voices brings her trio to Bass Concert Hall for an intimate performance with cabaret seating on the stage!

Winner of virtually every theatrical award, Barbara Cook’s silvery soprano, purity of tone, and warm presence have delighted audiences around the world for more than 50 years. Considered “Broadway’s favorite ingénue” during the heyday of the Broadway musical, Ms. Cook then launched a second career as a concert and recording artist soaring from one professional peak to another.

A 2011 Kennedy Center Honoree, Ms. Cook recently returned to the Broadway stage after a 23-year absence and was nominated for a Tony Award for her performance in the musical Sondheim on Sondheim, directed by James Lapine for the Roundabout Theatre Company.

“The evening’s most compelling performance was Ms. Cook’s ‘Here’s to Life.’ To hear this indestructible woman, who is now 83, muse, ‘I had my share, I drank my fill/ And even though I’m satisfied, I’m hungry still’ in a voice that has lowered without shedding any of its luster was to receive lines of personal scripture torn from the soul.” – The New York Times, Carnegie Hall Gala 2011
