Frank Sinatra

On April 16th, 1994 at the Onondaga County War Memorial, Frank Sinatra performed his last concert in Syracuse. His son, Frank Sinatra, Jr. conducted the orchestra for the show. During that year, at the age of 79, Sinatra performed more than 30 shows. The following year, in February 1995 at Marriott’s Desert Springs Resorts in Palm Springs, Sinatra performed for the last time. He would pass away three years later in May of 1998 at the age of 83. Sinatra’s long time friend and song writer, Syracuse native Jimmy Van Heusen, passed away in 1990. Van Heusen was responsible for songs such as The Last Dance and Come Fly Away.
