A concert devoted to the music of Barbra Streisand is the next event sponsored by the Oconto Falls Friends of the Arts.

“Simply Streisand” featuring Carla Del Villaggio is scheduled for 2 p.m. Feb. 11 in the Falls Area Performing Arts Center, 210 N. Farm Road, Oconto Falls.

Del Villaggio is a multiple award-winning tribute artist who has entertained audiences from Miami to Las Vegas to New York City recreating Streisand and her music. From the hair down to the trademark nails, wearing meticulously detailed replicas of iconic concert gowns, the performance is “Simply Streisand” in every way.

“A consummate actress and a natural comedienne with impeccable comic timing,” according to one critic, Del Villaggio has been praised for her voice, stage presence and professionalism.

The event is presented by the Oconto Falls Friends of the Arts and sponsored in part by ST Paper, Neva Hodge Lemorande, Ursula Rathie and NEW Credit Union.
