Old Salem concert
WINSTON-SALEM ó On Jan. 19, Old Salem will host its Founders Gala featuring Tony Award-winning actress and singer Barbara Cook who has been delighting audiences for more than 50 years.
Cook has received rave reviews during the recent series of concerts she performed to celebrate her 80th birthday. On Oct.28, Variety Magazine commented that “The lyric soprano spent an hour and 45 minutes onstage displaying an incomparable tender tone on ballads and bluesóshe can belt the showstoppers like ‘San Francisco’ as wellóand an unquestioned command of every song, regardless of its style.”
Her performance in Washington, D.C.’s Kennedy Center garnered praise from The Washington Post on Oct.22: “Few stylists these days shape the contours of their personalities to words and music as successfully as she.”
The Founders Gala is a black tie event beginning at 6 p.m. with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres at the Frank L. Horton Museum Center with a preview of the exhibit “Southern Perspective.” Dinner follows at 7:30 p.m. in the Visitor’s Center, followed by the performance by Barbara Cook at 9 p.m. in Gray Auditorium.
President’s Society donors will be treated to an after-show dessert reception to meet Cook. Tickets for the event are available for purchase at $250 per ticket.
