UMW Philharmonic Orchestra – Celebrity Series Michael Feinstein, Singer/ Pianist: The Sinatra Project
March 14, 2015
We’re celebrating the centennial of Frank Sinatra (1915- 1998) in style with another New York legend, his friend Michael Feinstein. A multiplatinum-selling, two-time Emmy and five-time GRAMMY Award-nominated entertainer, Feinstein is one of the premier interpreters of American standards. His 200-plus shows a year have included performances at Carnegie Hall, the Sydney Opera House, and the Hollywood Bowl. He’s performed at the White House and Buckingham Palace. Feinstein has received national recognition for his commitment to celebrating America’s popular song and preserving its legacy. In 2007, he founded the Michael Feinstein Great American Songbook Initiative, dedicated to preserving the art form for future generations.
About The Sinatra Project Feinstein earned his fifth GRAMMY Award nomination in 2009 for The Sinatra Project, his Concord Records CD celebrating the music of Ol’ Blue Eyes. The Sinatra Project, Volume II: The Good Life was released in 2011. Feinstein himself recommended the Sinatra show for us, because of Ol’ Blue Eyes’ 100th birthday. Admission starts at $35.
