Musical maven Mel Haber will keep the romance going after Valentine’s Day with a special Zoom presentation about the life and music of Frank Sinatra. On February 15 from 7:30 to 9:30 pm (doors will open at 7:15), Haber will trace Sinatra’s career from his early days with Harry James and his band until the early 1980s. Included will be not only some of Frank’s greatest recordings, but also his appearances in movies, television, and concerts.
In addition to the thematic “My Funny Valentine,” Zoomers will get to see him sing such songs as “One for My Baby,” “I Get a Kick out of You,” “That’s Life,” “Night and Day,” “Blues in the Night,” and “My Way.” As an extra added attraction, Sinatra will sing with Ella Fitzgerald, Dinah Shore, Dean Martin, and Johnny Carson–yes, that Johnny Carson.
Dr. Mel Haber, a retired business writing teacher, is a devoted music lover, primarily of popular music and opera. His music programs at libraries, JCCs, adult education centers and Hutton House are sold-out events. Audiences have found him to be extremely knowledgeable, entertaining, and passionate in his presentations.
