Barrington's White House announces livestream events
Barrington's White House is pleased to present its new online series, Virtual Arts and Culture. Each event will feature a visual artist or performer broadcasting via Zoom webinar.
On Saturday, June 6, from 7-8 p.m., enjoy an evening with Barrington's favorite singer-songwriter Pat McKillen live online. This interactive and unique virtual concert brings McKillen's sellout White House shows right to your living room.
The event will feature songs from his past and upcoming albums and a special Q&A session for any budding songwriters out there.
Dedicated to creating a sound that reflects the organic nature of his songwriting, McKillen brings life to songs recorded mostly in his Chicago apartment. The result is an evolving sound that couples a powerful and passionate voice with a fusion of musical genres, including folk, pop and rock.
Ready for some "pizzazz" from 7-8 p. Saturday, June 13? Mark your calendars for the Jazz Pizazz Sampler -- live streamed from Barrington's White House. Featured hits will include "Fly Me to the Moon," "Night and Day" and more, plus teasers "Embraceable You" and "The Man I Love" from the upcoming "Go Gershwin" jazz/dance show.
At Ms. Senior America 2018, Top 10 finalist Kimberly Albrecht's vocal performance was described by Time magazine as "epic." A lyric coloratura soprano, Albrecht first sang jazz with the University of Michigan Jazz Ensemble, and has performed a variety of musical styles throughout the Chicago area for more than 35 years.
Lifelong pianist Dr. Bill Wittert comes from a long line of Chicago musicians. He learned jazz from Alan Swain Studios and Drew Scalarcio, and regularly entertains at the Von Maur Department Store.
