ABOUT THE EVENT
“We’re enormously excited to be partnering together in Manistee on what should be a very special night,” said Maree Mulvoy, President of Michigan Legacy Art Park. “Our mission has always been to celebrate creativity and the undeniable power of human expression and share that with audiences in our region so this concert is a perfect extension of those ideas,” she added.
The collaboration also brought praise from David Mix, Vice President of the Ramsdell's Board of Directors. “Having been one of the founding Board members of the Art Park over 25 years ago, I’m pleased to see that, through this concert, the park’s story is coming to the Ramsdell’s stage,” said Mix. “I’ve had the opportunity of seeing Terry’s wonderful programs in the park,” Mix added, “But bringing his concert to our venue in Manistee will give it a whole new feeling.”
“I’m so pleased to be sharing audience favorites from several of my tours in Manistee,” said Barber. “My personal mission always includes support of the arts so I’m especially proud to be involved in the success of these great organizations in the state where I was born,” he added.
