Tony Turner is bringing his Northern Showtime Orchestra back to the Whitby Pavilion to present the Story of Frank Sinatra.
Scarborough-based trombone player Tony Turner created the Northern Showtime Orchestra to showcase the music of such legends as Frank Sinatra, Glenn Miller, George Gershwin and others.
“Our visit to Whitby last year to present our Glenn Miller Show was a memorable occasion and we are looking forward to bringing the fascinating musical career of Frank Sinatra to life for our audience at the Pavilion,” said Tony.
“For this show we have researched the archives and will recreate many of his greatest records, including: You Make Me Feel So Young, I’ve Got the World on A String, East of the Sun, I’ll Never Smile Again , Opus One, They Can’t Take that Away From Me, Someone to Watch Over Me, Chicago, the Coffee Song and One for My Baby.
“Sinatra is the best-known entertainer of his century,” said Tony.
“The more I researched his music the more I became intrigued at the world Sinatra lived in.
“He had everything: charisma, masses of self-confidence and good looks, but especially a unique voice that would reach into the soul of every member of his young female fan club that pre-dated the phenomenon of Bealtlemania.”
The Story of Sinatra is at the Pavilion on Monday May 26 at 7.30pm.
