Frank David Takes The Stage

By October 25, 2013Arts/Culture

Submitted. On October 26 from 8 to 10 PM, the Envision Coffee House Concert Series is proud to present Frank David at Clayburn Gourmet Gallery (#320 Immel Street) in Abbotsford.

As a young boy, Frank began singing traditional Italian songs for family and friends and was soon wowing audiences with his innate ability to sing complicated tenor arias. Upon moving to Vancouver in 1995, Frank David decided to obtain vocal coaching from an established opera voice coach.

In 2006, Frank David began learning the wonderful songs and arrangements of Frank Sinatra, and has since added over 100 Sinatra classic songs to his repertoire of hundreds of songs that include opera, cross-over, world and pop. Frank’s powerful three octave range and velvety smooth vocals make for a truly memorable and entertaining evening.

Concert goers are also invited to take part in Envision Financial’s Full Cupboard program by bringing non-perishable food or cash donations to Clayburn Gourmet Gallery.

“Through our new program, The Full Cupboard, Envision Financial is helping to reduce hunger in our community” says Town Centre branch manager Kelly Khakh. “Join us on October 26th at Clayburn Gourmet Gallery and bring along a non-perishable food or cash donation. All proceeds will stay in Abbotsford supporting our local food bank.”So far, over 4,100 pounds of food and $27,000 have been collected for The Full Cupboard via your donations – thank you!

“The great thing about The Full Cupboard is that all food and funds collected in your community will stay in your community,” says Susan Byrom, manager of community investment at Envision Financial. “That’s a great way to ensure every penny counts!”
