Mentoring today’s young artists is also a part of his personal mission. Barber is the founder/executive director of Artists for a Cause, a national nonprofit organization that helps visual and performing artists to use their talents for community improvement, stimulating culture, while addressing the critical needs of communities.

The holiday program will include two of St. Louis’ young artists, tapper Tommy Wasiuta and musical theatre performer Maggie Kuntz, who Barber mentors. Wasiuta is a member of the St. Louis Big Band, teaches tap classes throughout the area, and is also a student at the University of Missouri – St. Louis. Kuntz has won multiple local musical theater awards and is now a part of the one of the most competitive musical theater training programs in the country at University of Michigan.

The concert will also feature Amy Greenhalgh on violin and viola and Kris Pineda on piano.
