About This Event

A night of JAZZmeetsPOETRY in honor of Frank Sinatra
Celebrating the “Chairman of the Board”

The final show of the year for the JAZZmeetsPOETRY series highlights the gift that was – and is – Sinatra. Get inspired during the holiday season with a tribute to the legendary Frank Sinatra, born Dec. 12, as well as a celebration of Human Rights Day, Dec. 10.

The Chairman of the Board, with his signature voice, was also a champion and crusader for human rights. “He hated intolerance,” James Kaplan wrote in his 2010 biography, “Frank.” “First, of course, because it had smacked him personally in the face many times, but also because it attacked people he genuinely loved.”

“Stanzas For Sinatra” reminisces on the songs he made his own complemented by poetry to highlight the man and his music. Go on a journey from Hoboken to Las Vegas as we refashion and reimagine Sinatra’s work in a contemporary context.
