SINATRA AT 100: A Salute to The Chairman of the Board
An Ashford University Summer Pops Concert
Bill Conti, conductor
Cary Hoffman, vocals
Ol’ Blue Eyes is back! Frank Sinatra—the most popular male vocalist of the twentieth century never really left us. His music, that unmistakable voice, will play on forever: "Fly Me to the Moon," "Strangers in the Night" and "My Way," just to name a few. Don’t miss Cary Hoffman, today’s premiere Sinatra vocalist, as he salutes The Chairman of the Board with his acclaimed "My Sinatra" presentation. (Listen to "My Sinatra" for yourself, you won’t believe your ears, at www.mysinatra.com.)
Cary Hoffman turns his celebrated PBS Special into a biographical, often hilarious, and poignant one-man musical play about his love and idolization for his hero Frank Sinatra and the perils of wanting to become somebody else. Hoffman captivates the audience with his intimate journey of what it was like growing up fatherless with three musician uncles, who played on some of Sinatra’s greatest recordings, turning Sinatra into a fantasy father.
Hoffman authentically sings Sinatra “Dead On!” (The New York Times), as he weaves in over 20 classic Frank Sinatra songs, creating a musical score about his lifelong obsession. Ring-a-ding ding!
