ALBANY, GA (WALB) - One of the biggest names in music is coming to Albany this November, and young local musicians will be benefiting for years to come from his appearance.

Frank Sinatra Junior will perform at the Albany Municipal Auditorium on November 17th with a 17 piece jazz band made up of student musicians from Albany State university.

They will perform the standards that made Frank Sinatra famous. For the organizers, this show was a long time coming.

"It's a one in a lifetime thing, it doesn't happen too many times. We've been in touch with Frank, Jr. for about two years now and he finally made the decision, that this is a good thing to come and do," said Jesse Walker, an Assistant Professor of Music at Albany State.

The day after the concert, student musicians from high schools and colleges around the area will gather at ASU to work with Sinatra.
