Tony Orlando Coming To QCC



Tony Orlando, whose first hit single, “Candida”, was released more than four decades ago, has endured as one of America’s most compelling and favorite entertainers. His timeless songs will be heard by hundreds of fans at Queensborough Community College’s Performing Arts Center (QPAC) on Sunday, October 14 at 7 p.m. Tony Orlando and Dawn had 21 hit singles, four of which went gold: “Knock Three Times”, “Say, Has Anybody Seen My Sweet Gypsy Rose”, “Candida” and “Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Ole Oak Tree”, considered an American anthem. He also scored three number one songs on Billboard magazine’s Hot 100 charts. From millionselling records, movies and Broadway, Orlando has conquered every facet of show business. “The timing of Mr. Orlando’s performance here at QPAC is perfect as it coincides with the recent celebration of the 30th anniversary of his historic recording of “Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Ole Oak Tree”, QPAC Executive and Artistic Director Susan Agin said. “We are also delighted to welcome the hilarious comedienne Elayne Boosler, who is best known for her political humor, which promises to be more feisty than ever as her stand-up routine takes place right after the presidential debates and shortly before the general election.” For more information, contact the QPAC box office at www.qcc.cuny.edu/qpac/boxOffice.asp or call 718.631.6311.
