Guest artist Steve Lippia joins CCM's big bands for their season opening concert on Oct. 9, 2011.

Critically acclaimed jazz vocalist Steve Lippia joins CCM’s Jazz Ensemble and Jazz Lab Band for a tribute concert to the legendary Frank Sinatra on Sunday, Oct. 9 at 7 p.m. in Corbett Auditorium.

Aptly titled “Simply Sinatra,” this concert features the romance of an evening filled with the hits of “Old Blue Eyes,” including “Come Fly With Me,” “New York, New York” and “My Way.” Renowned for his charisma and stage presence, crooner Steve Lippia has performed around the country with extended engagements in the hotspots of Las Vegas and Atlantic City. Hear the hits of the “Chairman of the Board” brought to life as Lippia joins the CCM Jazz Ensemble and Jazz Lab Band, under the direction of Scott Belck and Dominic Marino, on stage in Corbett Auditorium for one night only.

About Steve Lippia
Steve Lippia has become one of the most prominent, in-demand vocalists and has quickly established his place among the finest interpreters of “standards” and traditional pop music in the nation. Lippia has headlined in highly successful, extended engagements at the Rio Suites Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas and Resorts Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, where audiences lined up more than two hours before show time to vie for seating. Lippia has also recently performed to sold-out audiences with many major symphonies across North America. His acclaimed, self-titled CD was recorded at Warner Brothers Studios in Los Angeles with a 41-piece symphony. In addition, Lippia has recorded Steve Lippia Live, a collection of some of his live performances. His much-anticipated third CD, titled Steve Lippia in Concert, was released June 16, 2009.
