Alan Gilbert Nominated for Emmy for Sinatra: Voice for a Century

Alan Gilbert Sinatra: Voice for a Century

To quote Ol' Blue Eyes himself, ring-a-ding-ding!

Yesterday Music Director Alan Gilbert was nominated for an Emmy for Best Musical Direction for Sinatra: Voice for a Century, which Live From Lincoln Center presented on PBS on December 18, 2015.

The nomination is the latest recognition of the versatility of Gilbert and the Philharmonic, who perform American popular song, musical theater, and opera with the same commitment to excellence they bring to classical music.

The concert, co-presented with Lincoln Center, took place December 3, 2015. It celebrated the 100th birthday of Sinatra through performances of songs with which he was closely associated. Performing them with the Philharmonic were Christina Aguilera, Chris Botti, Fantasia, Sutton Foster, Seth MacFarlane (who also hosted), Bernadette Peters, Sting, and others.
