The essence of a famous singer will be very much a part of Prince George Symphony Orchestra’s upcoming concert Blue Eyes and Broadway: A Tribute to Frank Sinatra. Vocalist and musician Michael Hope will perform songs made famous by Frank Sinatra and his contemporaries.
The concert features a night of nostalgia and great music performed by this gifted baritone singer. Come out and enjoy great classics like Fly Me to the Moon, New York, New York and many other favourites. The PGSO is also excited to welcome a guest conductor for this special evening of songs.
Associate conductor of the Fort Wayne Philharmonic, Bradley Thachuk brings his special brand of pops sensibilities to the PGSO for the first time. His professional debut in Canada took place at the Orchestra Canada convention when he was selected for the Young Conductor’s Showcase, leading the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony. He has been described as “stylish and sweepingly expressive.”
Blue Eyes and Broadway is a unique and refreshing element in the PGSO’s 2008-09 season. Hope’s entrancing voice promises to entertain and delight everyone who attend this must-see performance.
The concert begins at 8 p.m. Oct. 11 at Vanier Hall. Tickets are $32 for adults, $28 for students/seniors and $24 for youths. People are encouraged to purchase their tickets online at www.pgso.com or by phone at 250-562-0800 or the PGSO office, 2880 15th Ave.
