Matt Mardini Sings Sinatra and Aznavour at Rialto
Imagine. Frank Sinatra and Charles Aznavour sharing the stage, performing their greatest hits. On September 14, 2022, Montreal crooner, Matt Mardini, brought the audiences as close as possible to living that impossible fantasy in a sold-out concert at the Rialto Theatre.
As surprising as it may sound, Matt is the first crooner to perform such an official tribute to the two giants of American and French music in a single live show, in French and English. Mardini’s motivation for doing so goes beyond the obvious.
“I worship Sinatra and Aznavour. Their songs are the cornerstones of my repertoire, but there’s a more personal reason for bringing their music together,” explained Mardini. “Aznavour and Sinatra were both children of immigrants, Armenian and Italian respectively. For an immigrant artist like myself, there is no bigger inspiration. It is an honor to keep their memory and songs alive.”
