Fresh off starring in Amarillo Opera's La Traviata, tenor Eric Barry will give a solo recital Sunday.

Barry is a Sundown native and West Texas A&M University alum who's now a professional opera singer with credits around the world.

He'll perform at 7:30 p.m. Sunday at St. Andrew's Episcopal Church, 1601 S. Georgia St., as part of Friends of Aeolian-Skinner, Opus 1024's 2017-18 season.

"Everybody loves him," said Rick Land, FASO's executive director. "He'll definitely draw a crowd."

Barry has performed at Carnegie Hall and with opera companies in Boston, Memphis, Pittsburgh, North Carolina, Warsaw and elsewhere. He was featured in the 2012 Panhandle PBS special Eric Barry: Home for Christmas.

"The great thing about this performance is going to be sacred music because it's in a church," Barry said. "There will be opera and might be some other surprising things programmed."

Tickets are $30 for adults and $10 for students.

Call 806-376-6316, ext. 105.
