Sydney 2000 Olympic Arts Festival Ticket Booking Forms available

David will be performing with Barbara Cook on 21, 22 September, 2000 at the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall.

Cook will reunite with Campbell, whom she first met at a Sunday afternoon Masterclass she undertook with her accompanist Wally Harper a few years ago. When Campbell stepped confidently on stage and belted out a song in his knockabout style, she looked stunned. "I've just travelled 12,000 miles and what can I teach you? There's nothing I can say. Just keep doing what you are doing", as she entreated him to sing another song. He obliged, and let rip with "Rock-a-bye Your Baby." So, four years later, audiences will get to see Cook and Campbell at the Concert Hall, the young cabaret crooner reunited with the Broadway legend at her request. - SMH
