Please join us on Sunday, June 9th, 2019 at 5:30 PM for what will be a very special Musical Sunday Supper featuring this talented trio, singing Sinatra Classics, and enjoy a menu filled with of our classical favorites at L’Auberge Chez François.
Vocalist Bob McDonald, pianist Tony Nalker and instrumentalist Scott Silbert celebrate the songs and life of legendary crooner Frank Sinatra with an evening of the most memorable songs from the singer’s film and concert performances. The program will be an evening of Sinatra classics worthy of any Rat Pack. Bob McDonald is probably best known to the DC area as the National Anthem singer for the Washington Capitals hockey team. He also enjoys a diverse career across many artistic disciplines, including musical theater, opera, and the concert stage, as well as his job as an active-duty baritone and announcer in The United States Army Chorus. Bob has performed on most Washington DC area stages, including The Kennedy Center, Signature Theater, Folger Theater and others, and at various venues across the country. Bob received his BA and MA from Oberlin Conservatory of Music.
Tony Nalker performs widely in the Washington, D.C. area, currently serving as jazz pianist with the Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra and the National Symphony Orchestra Pops. From 1989-2016 Tony was the pianist of the premiere jazz ensemble of the U.S. Army, the Army Blues, and served as the group’s enlisted leader. Tony received his undergraduate degree in music from James Madison University and his M.A. in music from the University of Iowa.
Scott Silbert, a multiple woodwind player and arranger, joined the Navy band jazz ensemble “Commodores” in 1991 on baritone sax, and later the arranging staff (1999), serving as the Navy Band’s chief arranger from 2002 until his retirement in 2017. Professionally, Scott has performed with or has written music for the National Symphony Orchestra, The Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, Natalie Cole, Rosemary Clooney, Bob Hope, and Andy Williams, among many other luminaries. He is currently an active musician and arranger with the prestigious Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra. An extraordinary fun filled evening, not to be missed!
