Singer Doug LaBrecque on what it takes to be a star
As heard on WMUK's Let's Hear It, singer Doug LaBrecque tells host Cara Lieurance about his musical rise from roles in Lakeview High School productions in Battle Creek, MI, to chorus member in Les Miserables on Broadway, to starring as the Phantom in The Phantom of the Opera and Ravenol in the Hal Prince production of Showboat.
Mr. LaBrecque also recounts his transition from the rigors of Broadway touring shows to a career as a concert singer, performing pops programs with top north American and European symphony orchestras.
He also tells Cara Lieurance about Saturday night's concert with the Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra, which also features singers Christiane Noll and Debbie Gravitte. It's called The Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber, Marvin Hamlisch and Friends. Maestro Raymond Harvey will conduct.
