SINATRA - A TRIBUTE:
LECTURE AND LIVE PERFORMANCE
DESCRIPTION: The life and times of the singer and legend, Francis Albert Sinatra, told in chronological order by narrator Ian R. B. Nairnsey, with live vocals by Irwin Gordon, accompanied by taped background orchestration.
BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION: Ian Nairnsey was educated in London, where he attended Westminster Public School, qualified as an attorney and practiced in London for 35 years. He is a permanent resident of Florida and now an American citizen. Considered an expert on Broadway and London musical theatre, he has given many courses on the subject over the years at the Lifelong Learning Society (LLS) at Florida Atlantic University (FAU), and at other venues.
Irwin Gordon is a “natural singer.” This talent was exhibited at an early age when he was invited to a CBS studio school, the Ann Falk Studios. That influence helped him develop musicperformance skills. During his formative years, music played an important role, but later on, his life and a growing family caused him to shelve the music side for business. After a successful career, and with encouragement from family and friends, he returned to being a jazz singer. He has recorded three CD albums and is currently working on a fourth, all with the most-respected jazz musicians. He sings in many venues in Florida and New York. Gordon says of his singing, “ This is the most fun I ever had!”
