Barbara Cook to Offer Master Class at Kennedy Center
Barbara Cook, revered concert and cabaret singer and legendary Broadway, will conduct a master class on Tuesday, August 13 in the Terrace Theater of the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C.
She will work with six singers -- Wendy Lane Bailey, Tracy Lynn Olivera, Patrick O'Neill, Jennifer Ridgway, Judy Simmons, and Tim Tourbin -- during the two-hour class. According to Cook, "The main thrust of what I do in these classes is attempt to have each person get in touch with his or her 'emotional well.' I want them not to 'perform' for us but to have the courage to 'be' for us, to learn to trust whatever is unique in them."
Tickets to observe the class are available to the general public at $5 apiece and may be obtained at the Kennedy Center box office or online at www.kennedy-center.org. Tickets can also be purchased via phone by calling Instant Charge at 202-467-4600 or 1-800-444-1324.
