“A Classical Christmas” is the latest concert production by James Gafgen and Barbara Wayman of Bucks County. The pair launched their effort over 15 years ago to produce professional concert fundraisers for local and national charities.
Gafgen has performed extensively with the Mozart Festival of Philadelphia. He had the honor of singing at The Meadowlands prior to the Three Tenors Concert featuring Luciano Pavarotti.
Wayman has been a leading soprano with the Princeton Opera, the Trenton Civic Opera and the Muhlenberg Summer Theater Festival. She is the recipient of several voice scholarships and awards from the Philadelphia University of the Arts and Muhlenberg College, and was accepted to the acclaimed Peabody Institute of Baltimore. She apprenticed in opera and production at the New York City Opera under the direction of Beverly Sills.
