Linda Gentille and The Jersey Shore Pops are proud to present their opening season concert, “SINATRA & The POPS” starring Peter Oprisko. This performance will take place at The Ocean City Music Pier on Saturday, May 28 at 7 p.m. The concert is a musical and historical tribute to the music of the Chairman of the Board, Frank Sinatra.
The star of the concert, Peter Oprisko made his New Jersey debut with the pops in 2011 and was a sensation, receiving numerous standing ovations. Because of the overwhelming response, conductor Linda Gentille invited him back for an encore performance. Gentille states, “The audience reaction to Oprisko was so fantastic that we simply had to invite him back. This new show of Opriskos will be a musical and historical walk down the life of this great American Icon.”
Chicago-based pop/jazz singer Oprisko, often described as the “American Michael Buble” or the “next Frank Sinatra,” enjoyed a successful career as a writer, actor, voice-over performer and nationally-syndicated radio host (interviewing and featuring the music of legends Tony Bennett, Natalie Cole, Henry Mancini, Michael Feinstein and their contemporaries) before embarking on a path that has led him to become one of the country’s most in-demand and acclaimed concert and recording artists.
Accompanied by various sized virtuoso music ensembles (ranging from solo piano to big band), Peter tours extensively and averages 300 performances annually at theatres, colleges, clubs, fundraisers, casinos and corporations nationwide. His exciting, engaging, and interactive presentation that preserves, promotes and perpetuates the rich musical legacies of America’s foremost singers and songwriters’ appeals to audiences of all ages and has attracted many fans.
