Sounds of Sinatra played by W.Va. Symphony

From staff reports

The West Virginia Symphony Orchestra will host crooner Tony DeSare this Sunday in Parkersburg.

The concert will be at 3 p.m. at Blennerhassett School, 448 Jewell Road, Parkersburg.

DeSare and his band will join Music Director Lawrence Loh and the symphony for a afternoon filled with old-school Frank Sinatra classics like “Fly Me to the Moon,” “The Summer Wind,” “Luck Be a Lady,” “My Way” and many more.

“We are so excited to bring Tony and his Sinatra-style music just in time for Valentine’s Day,” said Amanda McDonald, marketing director for the symphony. “It will be a perfect date night for couples of all ages.”

Downbeat magazine named DeSare a Rising Star Male Vocalist and critics have called DeSare “two parts Frank Sinatra and one part Billy Joel.” DeSare has three top ten Billboard jazz albums under his belt and has been featured on the CBS Early Show, NPR, A Prairie Home Companion, the Today Show and his music has been posted by social media celebrity juggernaut George Takei.

Tickets for the Parkersburg concert are $22 for adults or $10 for students, and are available at wvsop.org or by calling 304-485-4200.
