NEWARK—Frank Sinatra Jr. and Steve Tyrell will headline “Come Fly with Me: Celebrate Sinatra’s Songwriter,” a special program honoring the 100th anniversary of the birth of legendary songwriter Sammy Cahn. The New Jersey Symphony Orchestra and New Jersey Performing Arts Center co-present the one-day-only program on Sunday, Nov. 24, at NJPAC in Newark at a new matinee time of 3 p.m.
Sinatra Jr., one of the leading interpreters of Cahn’s catalog, and cabaret favorite Tyrell join the NJSO to perform Cahn’s songs played the way they were meant to be heard, with lush orchestral accompaniment. The program features dozens of chart-topping hits, including “All the Way,” “My Kind of Town,” “Three Coins in the Fountain,” “Time After Time,” “Call Me Irresponsible,” “Bei mir bist du schoen” and “High Hopes”—all penned by Cahn.
“Sammy Cahn didn’t just write songs for Frank Sinatra,” Sinatra Jr. says, noting compositions like “Time After Time,” “Five Minutes More” and “Saturday Night (Is the Loneliest Night of the Week).” “He wrote hits for Frank Sinatra.”
