“A national treasure, the premier interpreter of the American musical songbook working today.” -Los Angeles Times

“Essential is precisely the word for Ms. Cook’s contributions to the art of song in America.” -The New York Times

Barbara Cook’s silvery soprano, purity of tone and warm, authentic presence have charmed audiences around the world for more than 50 years. Considered Broadway’s favorite leading lady during the heyday of the musical (she originated the role of Marian the Librarian in The Music Man and played Anna in The King and I), she subsequently launched a career as a concert performer that cemented her reputation as one of popular music’s greatest voices. This season, Cook celebrates her 85th birthday and makes a triumphant return to the Kennedy Center.
