Singer Tony DeSare may just be keeping memories of the Rat Pack alive, one concert at a time.
DeSare will be the featured artist in “Sinatra & Beyond” this weekend with the Omaha Symphony. He will perform Sinatra songs such as “Come Fly With Me” and “Luck Be a Lady,” as well as Dean Martin’s “Just in Time” and some original pieces. His four-piece jazz band, plus the orchestra, will create a “big band” sound.
The Pop series concert will be at 7:30 p.m. Saturday and repeated at 2 p.m. Sunday. Tickets range from $19 to $157 and are available at omahasymphony.org or 402-345-0606.
