Ann Hampton Callaway: The Barbra Streisand Songbook


Concert Details


A superbly intelligent, singularly creative pop-jazz stylist who can stand shoulder to shoulder with the likes of Streisand, Ronstadt, Shirley Horn, and Dianne Reeves.


Tony-nominee Ann Hampton Callaway, one of the leading pop/jazz singers of our time, has created an exciting night of songs and stories in celebration of one of America’s most beloved artists, Barbara Streisand.

Callaway is one America’s most gifted and prolific artists. A leading champion of the Great American Songbook, she’s made her mark as a singer, pianist, composer, lyricist, arranger, actress, educator, TV host, and producer. Her unique singing style blends jazz and traditional pop, making her a mainstay in concert halls, theaters, and jazz clubs as well as in the recording studio, on television, and in film. She is best known for her Tony-nominated performance in the hit Broadway musical Swing! and for writing and singing the theme song to the hit TV series The Nanny.

Callaway is a Platinum Award–winning writer whose songs are featured on seven of Barbra Streisand’s recent CDs. She has shared the stage with great artists from many genres—George Shearing, Dizzy Gillespie, Stevie Wonder, Dr. John, Liza Minnelli, Betty Buckley, Dianne Reeves, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Audra McDonald, Harvey Fierstein, Ramsey Lewis, Kurt Elling, and Michael Feinstein. Callaway’s live performances showcase her warmth, spontaneous wit, and passionate delivery of standards, jazz classics, and originals. Stephen Holden of The New York Times writes, “For sheer vocal beauty, no contemporary singer matches Ms. Callaway.”
