To the 100th anniversary of Frank Sinatra

The first Gabfest Club session (at Window on America center Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine) in 2016 was dedicated to the 100th anniversary of Frank Sinatra.
This American singer, songwriter, actor, producer and director is popular in Ukraine as well. He was one of the most popular and influential musical artists of the 20th century. F. Sintara is one of the best-selling music artists of all time, having sold more than 150 million records worldwide. He is famous for a selection of beautiful Xmas songs. The basics facts about F. Sinatra were presented to the group. His popular nicknames “The Voice” and “Al’ Blue Eyes” were explained and illustrated with videos and images.
The iconic songs “My Way” and “New York” were played to the group to enjoy the tunes and to translate the lyrics. The lovers of Sinatra music recommended web sites where one can find translation of lyrics into Russian.
The second part of the session was a New Year tea ceremony with sweet treats. The Club members shared with fellows how they celebrated the New Year. Our American friend Mr. Jason carefully listened to the stories about the back ground of Ukrainian symbols of New Year celebration – potato salad “Olivier”, citrus fruits, watching “Irony of Fate” movie and others.

Happy New Year to ALL!!!
