Tony DeSare, star of the off-Broadway hit Our Sinatra, joins Victoria Symphony for Old Blue Eyes: Music of Frank Sinatra
Victoria, BC – Described by the New York Times as “two parts young Sinatra to one part Billy Joel”, Tony DeSare joins the Victoria Symphony in a tribute to the legendary Frank Sinatra, Saturday, November 2, 2019 at 8pm and Sunday, November 3 at 2pm. Both performances are at the Royal Theatre, 805 Broughton Street, Victoria.
Frank Sinatra crooned the tunes that defined the 20th century and today, more than twenty years after his death at age 82, Sinatra’s music is as popular as ever.
VS Conductor Giuseppe Pietraroia and the orchestra welcome singer/pianist Tony DeSare, who starred in the Off-Broadway show, Our Sinatra, to sing many of Sinatra’s hits. Named a Rising Star Male Vocalist in Downbeat magazine, DeSare has appeared in venues ranging from Carnegie Hall to jazz clubs. He’s headlined in Las Vegas, appeared with major symphony orchestras throughout North America, and he has three top-ten Billboard jazz albums under his belt. With a distinctive swinging style that’s all his own, he takes on the legend of Ol’ Blue Eyes himself, delivering a fresh take on Frank’s music in an outstanding, critically-acclaimed homage that includes “Come Fly with Me”, “Just in Time”, “My Way”, “Night and Day”, “One for my Baby”, and many more.
Old Blue Eyes: Music of Frank Sinatra is presented November 2, 2019 at 8 p.m. with matinée November 3, at 2 p.m., at the Royal Theatre, 805 Broughton Street. Tickets are $33 – $85 and are available from the Victoria Symphony Box Office at 250-385-6815.
