PBS will broadcast Michael Feinstein: The Sinatra Legacy as part of its special programming in August 2011.

The program was recorded on May 12, 2011 in the newly completed, state-of-the-art concert hall, the Palladium in Carmel, Indiana. Backed by a 32-piece orchestra, Feinstein guides viewers on a musical journey of Sinatra and his contemporaries, and how they influenced each other. Through his performance, Feinstein conjures up the biggest musical legends of that golden era using their extraordinary music, spiced with intimate stories about their larger-than-life personalities.

Featured songs include "Once in a Lifetime," "I Thought About You," "Fly Me to the Moon," "Put on a Happy Face"/"Lotta Livin'," "So In Love," "There'll Be Some Changes Made," "Begin the Beguine," "Brazil," "For Once in My Life," and "New York, New York."

A five-time Grammy Award nominee, Feinstein maintains an extensive touring schedule and has appeared at venues ranging from Carnegie Hall and the Hollywood Bowl to the White House and Buckingham Palace. In addition, he serves on the Library of Congress' National Recording Preservation Board, and is artistic director of the Center for Performing Arts.
