The sounds of Frank Sinatra are filling the Centennial Concert Hall this weekend as part of a three-day concert series featuring Steve Lippia.
The crooner opened Friday night with a stellar tribute of Sinatra’s timeless music, which is delivered in an energetic and powerful performance that creates a perfect blend of classic, mixed with today’s sounds.
Lippia has performed to sold out audiences with many major symphonies across North America including the Philly Pops, Toronto, Rochester Philharmonic and Palm Beach Pops, and was even the featured act at the Montreal Convention Centre, backed by an orchestra to honour Canadian hockey legend Guy LaFleur.
