Sinatra and Beyond with Tony DeSare

Conducted by Cosette Justo Valdés
November 24 & 25 7:30 PM

Triple-threat Tony DeSare brings Ol’ Blue Eyes' music to life with your ESO. This charming crooner, known for being “two parts Frank Sinatra and one part Billy Joel,” will transport you to another era. Sip a martini while you enjoy DeSare’s delightful take on Sinatra’s most popular classics including Night and Day, One for my Baby, Come Fly With Me, Luck Be A Lady, I’ve Got the World on a String, and My Way. Close your eyes and you may be convinced that Sinatra himself is in the building.

Nov. 24 Post-Concert Activity - Quickfire Questions

Have you ever wanted to dish with the ESO musicians off-stage after a concert? Here is your opportunity to get to know some members of your Edmonton Symphony Orchestra. We are having our first Quickfire Questions immediately following the concert. Grab a drink from the bar, then sit down at a table for a casual conversation with a musician and ask fun questions such as: What is your favourite symphony? How did you start playing your instrument? How many auditions have you done in your life? And if one conversation isn’t enough - good news! You’ll get to rotate through several other musicians and ask them all your questions, too!

Quickfire questions will begin after the concert concludes in the main lobby (first floor) of the Winspear on November 24.
