Sundays at Three: A Touch of Sinatra

Donnie Farraro as Frank Sinatra
Join us at Bernardsville Public Library on Sunday, October 12 at 3:00 pm for a free musical show about the life and music of Frank Sinatra, narrated by Joe Gilligan and performed by Donnie Farraro. Listeners will be entertained with the story of Sinatra’s life, the songs that made him one of the most renowned singers of the 20th century, as well as funny stories and jokes.

Writer Joe Gilligan is a former singer and founder of the oldies group Reminisce, a group that sang nostalgic songs of the past. He is the creative writer for “A Touch of Sinatra” and did extensive research to uncover some unknown facts about Sinatra which are incorporated into this entertaining show.

In 2004, Donnie Farraro was diagnosed with Stage 4 throat cancer and was not expected to live, let alone sing. Today, he is an inspiration to many, singing at about 100 performances a year. He may be one of the most authentic sounding Frank Sinatra singers that the audience has ever heard.

This concert is funded by the Friends of the Bernardsville Public Library. It’s free and no sign-up is needed. There will be light refreshments. Doors open at 2:45 pm. For further information, call the library at 908-766-0118.
