New York crooner Cary Hoffman's tribute to the spirit of Frank Sinatra will be part of the Smith Opera House's annual fund-raising event “Swing Under the Stars” on Saturday, Oct. 28.
A live performance of “My Sinatra: The Songs and the Stories,” starring Hoffman and detailing the music and myth behind Sinatra, will also tell the story of “how Cary Hoffman, at the age of 15, fell hopelessly in love with the sound of Frank Sinatra.”
