'The Voice' ... 'Ol' Blue Eyes' ... 'The Sultan of Swoon': the mythology surrounding Frank Sinatra is overwhelming. A gifted entertainer, screen actor and ubiquitous personality, his real legacy as a pioneer of popular song can sometimes get lost in the clamour. This Late Night Prom celebrates the centenary of this musical legend in a concert that brings together some of the great voices of our own time, led by the multitalented Seth MacFarlane and vocalists Jamie Parker and Claire Martin. Join John Wilson and his orchestra for an after-hours sequence of big tunes and even bigger performances.
