A Sensational Trib- ute to Sinatra and Streisand. It is unlikely that the two powerhouse voices of the century would have ever shared the same stage ... until nowl They never worked together, exactly, except when they taped a duet in separate recording sessions, but it's tantalizing to think what it would have been llke to have Barbra Streisand and Frank Sinatra teamed up for a concert tour. Just imagine the possibilities. Would one have outshone the other? Would their on stage banter have been friendly or a bit snippy? The rapport of these two 20th century icons is immediately prevalent. What's On magazine states, "As good as the music is, the banter between the stars is equally memo- rable."

My whole life has been guided by music. My father was the conductor of a symphony orches- tra, and music was the center of our home and family life.
