A Tony, Grammy and Drama Desk Award-winner -- not to mention a 2011 Kennedy Center honoree -- Barbara Cook has gone from being Broadway's favorite ingénue in signature roles like Marian the Librarian in The Music Man to a still-sought-after concert and recording artist.
Throughout her esteemed career, Cook's silvery soprano has retained its pure tone and warm presence, to much critical and popular acclaim. In 2010, at the age of 83, Cook earned a Tony nomination for her performance in Sondheim on Sondheim on Broadway, and she's still going strong, performing with a number of symphony orchestras, in cabaret settings and at such esteemed venues as Lincoln Center, the Kennedy Center and London's Royal Albert Hall.
On this outdoor evening at Ravinia, she'll be accompanied by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and conductor Richard Kaufman, celebrating her 85th birthday and tackling tunes from the Great White Way's greatest composers, including Bernstein, Berlin, Gershwin, Rodgers and of course, Sondheim, with "No One Is Alone" and "No More" from Into the Woods. She's also set to sing "Wonderful Guy" and "This Nearly Was Mine" from South Pacific, songs from State Fair, Showboat, Passion and many more.
