Charles Aznavour: A Tribute Concert
Encore Edition! January 9th at 9:30 PM
The critically acclaimed concert honoring Charles Aznavour returns to Feinstein’s/54 Below on Wednesday, January 9th at 9:30 PM with more of Aznavour’s signature songs.
Rave reviews for the original concert: “Producer/director/writer/host Scott Siegel created a show of much délice et joie in honoring French singer-songwriter Charles Aznavour…Representative works from Aznavour’s vast repertoire of story-songs, notable for their great intensity and passion, were delivered by a talented, hand-picked cast!” – Cabaret Scenes
So much more than a French singing star, Charles Aznavour was the ultimate singer/songwriter who achieved unprecedented world-wide fame. In 1998 he was named Entertainer of the Century by CNN. He was recognized as the century’s most outstanding performer, edging out Elvis Presley and Bob Dylan.
In a career spanning over 70 years, he recorded more than 1,200 songs interpreted in eight languages. He wrote or co-wrote more than 1,000 songs for himself and others. Most impressive of all, he sold more than 180 million records during his lifetime.
In our concert tribute to the great Charles Aznavour, we will present his most famous songs, among them (of course), “Yesterday, When I Was Young,” “She,” “To Die of Love,” “Take Me Along,” “Ave Maria,” “The Sound of Your Name,” No, I Could Never Forget,” and many more!
NYC impresario Scott Siegel will write, direct, and host the concert. (For Aznavour fans, please note that at one of Aznavour’s Carnegie Hall concerts, Scott fought off hordes of other husbands and retrieved the white handkerchief Aznavour traditionally drops at the end of”La Boheme” and gave it to his wife, Barbara, who has been a lifelong Aznavour fan.)
We invite you to come to our special concert event to honor, commemorate, and enjoy the brilliant and enduring work of Charles Aznavour!
