Immortal tunes made famous by “Ol’ Blue Eyes” Frank Sinatra will continue to work their magic on audiences at Segerstrom Center for the Arts during a one-of-a-kind multi-media experience by Frank Sinatra, Jr. on May 2, 2015. Titled Sinatra Sings Sinatra, As I Remember It, Sinatra, Jr. will share first-hand recollections of life on and off stage with his iconic father through stories, photos, videos and songs. Sinatra, Jr. will show excerpts from his father’s films, rare family photos and share insights into the world’s greatest entertainer that can only come from his son.
Backed by his 37-piece orchestra featuring many members who played with Sinatra, Sr., this equally famous crooner will perform much-loved Sinatra classics as “Come Fly With Me,” “New York, New York,” “Strangers in the Night” and, of course, “My Way.” Audiences who have attended these performances have come away delighted to have heard the music of Sinatra performed by the greatest living authority on Sinatra music, who is also the one vocalist most qualified to sing them.

Frank Sinatra, Jr. was born in New Jersey, raised in California and educated in the showrooms of Las Vegas and on stages all over the world. He found himself catapulted into a position he never sought but must have surely contemplated.
Beginning in 1988, at his father’s request, Sinatra, Jr. served as conductor and musical director for his father’s final years of live performing. It earned Sinatra, Jr. the respect of the musicians and those in the audience for the devotion and skill he brought to the job. Currently, Sinatra, Jr. enjoys touring in many countries, on the stages of casino show rooms, performing arts centers, theaters and the halls of the world's greatest symphony orchestras.
