Ann Hampton Callaway is uniquely qualified to pay homage to the great Barbra Streisand: a Platinum-award winning vocalist, songwriter and performer, she is a triple threat in the best sense of the word. Callaway is a prolific recording artist and a fixture both on and off Broadway. Her original compositions have been recorded by dozens of singers, including Carole King, Patti LuPone and Streisand herself.
On January 19, Callaway and the Colorado Symphony, with resident conductor Scott O'Neil at the podium, will bring The Barbra Streisand Songbook to life at Boettcher Concert Hall. Callaway will perform some of Streisand's most beloved songs, including "Don't Rain on My Parade," "Evergreen," "On A Clear Day," and "I've Dreamed of You," which Callaway wrote for the legendary performer to sing at her wedding to James Brolin.
Tickets start at $25 and are available online, by phone, 303-623-7876, or in person at the Box Office in Boettcher Concert Hall, Monday through Friday from 10 am-6 pm and Saturday from 12 pm-6 pm. Tickets, full concert listings, links and information can be found on www.coloradosymphony.org.
