Ella Fitzgerald and Frank Sinatra: Masters of American Song

Christopher Dragon, conductor
Capathia Jenkins and Tony DeSare, vocalists

Ella Fitzgerald and Frank Sinatra were two undisputed masters of “The Great American Songbook.” During their storied careers, they appeared together several times on television and on stage. Great fans of one another’s work, their mutual admiration transformed into pure magic when performing together. Sadly, they never realized a recording immortalizing their collaborative legacy. Join your Colorado Symphony and special guest artists Capathia Jenkins and Tony DeSare as we work to recreate some of that magic live for one night only this September.
