Celebrate Frank Sinatra's centennial in style when five-time Grammy nominee Michael Feinstein pays tribute to the Chairman of the Board in an evening of greatest hits.
On the exact date of Sinatra's birth 100 years ago, Michael Feinstein performs with a swinging, 17-piece band. Known as "The Ambassador of the Great American Songbook," this multi-platinum-selling singer and pianist bases a very special evening on his smash albums The Sinatra Project and The Sinatra Project, Vol. II: The Good Life. Recognized as one of the world's leading interpreters of Sinatra's repertoire, Feinstein landed a 2009 Grammy nomination for The Sinatra Project and a 2012 Emmy nod for his TV special, The Sinatra Legacy.
For his nationally syndicated public radio program Song Travels, Feinstein interviews and performs along with music luminaries such as Bette Midler, Neil Sedaka, Liza Minnelli and others. The PBS series Michael Feinstein's American Songbook earned the ASCAP Deems-Taylor Television Broadcast Award.
Feinstein has received national recognition for his commitment to celebrating America's popular song and preserving its legacy. The Michael Feinstein Great American Songbook Initiative is dedicated to the art form and its preservation through educational programs, master classes and scholarships.
Ticket holders are invited to a lot of "Frank" discussion with arts journalist and author Will Friedwald and author Charles L. Granata during a free conversation from 6:30 to 7:30pm in the Chase Room.
