BPO recalls the unforgettable Nat 'King' Cole

Canadian baritone Denzal Sinclaire came to fame tackling one of the biggest challenges imaginable -- paying tribute to the silken voice of Nat "King" Cole. Born in Toronto in 1969, Sinclaire does not set out to imitate Nat Cole note for note. But he has internalized Cole's style and soul. Audiences have embraced his crooning: He has been nominated multiple times for Canada's prestigious Juno Award, and has recorded three albums for Universal Music.

Sinclaire croons for Buffalo at 8 p.m. March 4 in  Kleinhans Music Hall, when he joins the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra and Resident Conductor Stefan Sanders for "The Unforgettable Nat 'King' Cole." It's an entire evening of the master's hits, from "Nature Boy" on through "Route 66," "Smile," "When I Fall in Love," "I've Got the World On a String" and the jive "Straighten Up and Fly Right."

Tickets are $29-$82. Arrive early at 7 p.m., and hear the Buffalo Dolls perform live in the Community Spotlight. For info, visit bpo.org or call 885-5000.
