Country music favorite COLLIN RAYE is one of the true hit makers from the 1990s continuing to crank out soulful, heartfelt material with the honesty and richness that is signature to his vocals alone. With 24 top ten records, 16 number one hits, and having been a 10 time Male Vocalist of the Year nominee, this truly electrifying performer remains one of the great voices of our time.
AN EVENING WITH COLLIN RAYE, following the Southeast Iowa Farm Show, will feature the soulful delivery that has set country standards in such searing ballads as "Love Me," "In This Life," "Not That Different," and "If I Were You." Always an energizing showman, he has also blazed through such vivid rockers as "My Kind of Girl," "That's My Story," "I Can Still Feel You," and "I Want You Bad."
Fairfield's COLORATURA will take the Sondheim stage in support of Colling Raye from 7:15 p.m. - 7:35 p.m., with Colin Raye performing immediately following.
COLORATURA is a newly formed vocal group: a trio composed of three budding talented singers. These young ladies, Maya Gottshall, Megan Higgins, and Devika Pharasi, first came together in their seventh grade year for the Fairfield Middle School's annual winter talent show where they left the audience stunned with their performance of Demi Lovato's "Neon Lights." The girls have had a rich history of experience with the performing arts, both together and as individuals. They participated together in the theater productions of Aladdin Jr., Shrek, and The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood. The trio's singing debut in the Sondheim was during the 2016 Coming Home, Coming Together Show. Coloratura is ready to show their skills, as well as share their colorful harmonies with you.
