The New Britain Symphony celebrates Valentine’s Day with “The Many LoveS(ongs) of Frank Sinatra” on Sunday, February 5, 2012 at 3:00 p.m. at Mooreland Hill School in Kensington.
The presentation is led by CCSU professor and Sinatra expert Dr. Gilbert Gigliotti, who will share his insights on “ol’ blue eyes” through the lens of the singer’s most significant and popular recordings about love and heartbreak. From “All or Nothing At All” to “(Love is) The Tender Trap,” the audience will get a kick out of learning how Frank’s songs became the soundtrack of 20th century romance. A complimentary glass of wine and some sweet treats complete the occasion.
Admission is free, although free will offerings will be accepted; proceeds will benefit the New Britain Symphony and the Mooreland Hill Scholarship Fund.
Mooreland Hill School is located at 166 Lincoln Street in Kensington, CT. The event takes place in the school auditorium.
Other upcoming NBSO events include a “A String Quartet Playing the Beatles!!??” on March 11 at 3 p.m at the New Britain Museum of American Art, and the final Magnum Opus Series concert, featuring a program of Strauss, Mahler, Tchaikovsky, and Brahms, on April 15 at 4 p.m. in Welte Hall at CCSU.
