From the silver screen to the golden tones of his voice over the air, Frank Sinatra was one of the most captivating performers of the 20th century. “Old Blue Eyes” collaborated with some of the greatest musicians of all time including Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Dean Martin and the Rat Pack. Winner of multiple awards, an Oscar and Golden Globes, the “Chairman of the Board” is still beloved! Join vocalist Peter Lake, Frank’s “Shadow,” recounting moments that shaped the man who brought us “New York, New York,” “The Way You Look Tonight,” and “Come Fly with Me.”
