This five-part class explores Frank Sinatra's cultural significance.

Explore the incredible career and peerless artistry of Frank Sinatra, one of the great interpreters of American popular music.

The only child of Italian immigrants seeking fulfillment of the “American Dream,” Frank Sinatra (1915–1998) was an institution, a legend in his own time, and a true original. For sixty years, whether as “the Voice,” “Chairman of the Board” or “Ol’ Blue Eyes,” he was an innovator and custodian of the great American songbook. This course examines the singer’s matchless renditions of the works of George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, Richard Rodgers, and others, and discusses why Sinatra really matters.

Instructor: Earl J. Schub is Dean Emeritus of Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University. He served as director of marketing and executive producer for television at the Lyric Opera of Chicago and manager of Western Opera Theater. He holds an MBA in arts management from UCLA.
