Ann Hampton Callaway sings ‘Barbra Streisand Songbook’
Concert is finale of Onstage at Kingsborough’s spring season
Brooklyn icon Barbra Streisand is getting the ultimate borough tribute – an evening devoted to her songs – at a special concert at Kingsborough Community College on Saturday.
Ann Hampton Callaway, a Tony nominated singer-songwriter who has written songs for Streisand, including the love song that Barbra sang to her husband James Brolin at their wedding, is performing “The Barbra Streisand Songbook” at Kingsborough Community College, 2001 Oriental Boulevard in Manhattan Beach, on Saturday, May 17, at 8 p.m.
Hampton Callaway’s concert tribute to her friend marks the final show in the spring season of Onstage at Kingsborough, a series designed to bring top-notch talent to southern Brooklyn for audiences to enjoy.
“I am looking forward to it. I love the idea of paying tribute to Barbra. Her songs are the soundtrack to our lives,” Hampton Callaway told the Brooklyn Eagle in a phone interview on May 9. “I want to paint a portrait of this great artist.”
