She received critical acclaim for her show-stopping performance in the Leonard Bernstein’s ground-breaking 1956 operetta, Candide, and in 1958, she won her first Tony Award for her performance in the role of Marian the Librarian in The Music Man, a role that she originated.

In 1974, Ms. Cook began a creative partnership with musical arranger, accompanist, composer, dance arranger and conductor Wally Harper, which lasted for nearly thirty-one years. Numerous recordings mark the journey of this unique partnership, beginning with Barbara Cook at Carnegie Hall, a live recording of their legendary 1975 Carnegie Hall debut. Ms. Cook and Mr. Harper traveled the world together and performed a number of times at the White House for Presidents Carter, Reagan, Bush and Clinton.

In January 2006 Ms. Cook made her solo concert debut at the Metropolitan Opera Company, the sold-out performance making her the first female pop singer to be presented by the MET in the company’s 123 year history. In November 2007 she achieved yet another career high when she celebrated her 80th birthday in concert with the New York Philharmonic at Avery Fisher Hall.  Due to popular demand two encore performances of the critically acclaimed concert played to sold-out houses.
