  • My Way a Musical Tribute to Frank Sinatra

    Riverside Dinner Theater My Way a Musical Tribute to Frank Sinatra

    My Way a Musical Tribute to Frank Sinatra
    May 9, 2015 - June 28, 2015

    Frank Sinatra. He’s the icon of cool – from classic elegance to contemporary “fedora” hipster. Four accomplished vocalists will take you from the 1940’s swing era, to the bright lights of Las Vegas with the Rat Pack in the 1960s, and to his final performances in the 1990s of Ol’ Blue Eyes. As Stephen Holden wrote for the 1983 Rolling Stone Record Guide: “Frank Sinatra’s voice is pop music history.” Come hear the songs that his voice made history.

    Among the 58 songs made famous by Sinatra are “Strangers in the Night,” “That Old Black Magic,” “New York, New York,” “I’ve Got You Under My Skin,” “High Hopes,” “Fly Me to the Moon” and, of course, “My Way.”

    Gari Melchers Home and Studio Woodland Hike

    Gari Melchers Home and Studio at Belmont will offer free guided nature hikes every last Sunday of the month. Tours will start outside the Museum Shop at 2 pm. Members of the Central Rappahannock Chapter of the Virginia Master Naturalist program will lead tours of the woods and fields at Belmont. The walk will cover about one mile of trails and will touch on the historic ruins that illustrate Belmont’s past. Volunteer guides will also discuss the progress of the woods from pasture land to impenetrable wilderness to the maturing woodlands seen today. Belmont’s trails cover steep and rough terrain and may be muddy at times, so sturdy footwear is recommended. Tours will take place in rain, snow or shine. No reservations are necessary. For more information contact Beate Jensen at 540-654-1839.
