This year’s Chautauqua, in addition to stars whose works have been part of radio playlists for years, also features a few performers who made their marks in music on the stage.
Emmy-winner Liz Callaway has been a Broadway star for years, appearing in the first production of Miss Saigon and singing “Memory” from Cats for several years. Callaway later lent her vocal talents to animated films such as The Swan Princess and Disney’s The Lion King 2.
German-born Jann Klose is no stranger to the stage either, having appeared in productions of Jesus Christ Superstar and Tommy. Klose has four albums to his credit and a Grammy nomination, in addition to touring with the likes of Suzanne Vega and Roseanne Cash, according to the Chautauqua website.
The evening will also feature the talents of pianist Jacqueline Schwab, who played the somber melodies heard in the background of Ken Burns’ famous “The Civil War” documentary series.
John Pratt expressed excitement for the evening concert, which follows a day of presentations to GCHS students. The show begins at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 5. Tickets are $5 in advance from the school or may be purchased at the door for $7.
