Performing with a Toronto all-star big band featuring London based pianist Rob Barron, multiple Juno Award-winners Allison Au, Michael Occhipinti, Roberto Occhipinti, and more. Palestinian singer, composer, and producer Omar Kamal brings together a stunning repertoire of emotional hits for one enchanting evening of standards at Koerner Hall. The pure power of his voice can be felt in his eclectic catalogue and captivating performances, from Sinatra’s croon and to Joe William's swing. 

Omar Kamal has captivated audiences worldwide with his unique blend of jazz, classical, Arabic, and oriental music. His debut album Serenade, produced by Dave Pierce (Michael Bublé, The Frank Sinatra Estate) and Bob Rock (Metallica, Jon Bon Jovi, Aerosmith) in 2017, showcased his versatility and talent as a vocalist and musician. The title track of his second album Show Me the Light reached the UK top 10 chart positions and was followed by an international tour that featured sold out shows at Dubai Opera and Ronnie Scott’s in London. 

This evening is dedicated to the memory of Tony Bennett.
