Mr. Cannella, whose performance Brian describes as “jaw-dropping and memorable,” is now signed exclusively to Bigshot Records. He has sung both classics and originals to packed houses at restaurants, nightclubs, and casinos along the East Coast from New York to Washington, DC. He describes his sound as traditional pop, swing, and jazz, with some of the tenor’s favorite classics including Bobby Darin’s version of “Mack the Knife”, and of course the eponymous Sinatra anthems “My Way” and “New York, NY.” Brian loves it when his band mixes it up by sometimes throwing in a Michael Buble’ version of a Sinatra tune.
This accomplished vocalist will be supported by the Choper Jazz Project that features Brian on drums, Harry Appelman on keyboard, and Ephraim Wolfolk on bass, all popular acts on their own, plus a horn section. Brian, the legendary drummer and founder of the Mishkan Torah favorite New Klezmer Quintet, needs no introduction. Mr. Appelman, who teaches at Montgomery College, has appeared around the world with many renowned jazz bands, and was Choper’s first pick to play keys in his band. Mr. Wollfolk is a notable talent who serves on the board of the D.C. Federation of Musicians.
This is a special, one-time only concert at Mishkan Torah! You will not want to miss Mr. Cannella and Brian’s renowned musicians performing the inimitable music of the one and only Chairman of the Board, Frank Sinatra. Tickets are priced at a special Mishkan Torah rate of $20 for adults; $10 for teens 13 and over, $5 for kids 12 and under, and $50 for a family group.
Donations are welcome, even if you will not be able to attend the concert in person. Tickets may be purchased and donations made utilizing the flyer found elsewhere in this edition of “The Trumpet” or on-line at www.MishkanTorah.org and following the prompts.
Make this one a Very Good Year for you and yours! Be Young at Heart, and see you at the “MY WAY” concert on June 26th for that great Sinatra music!
