"We aren't likely to see a recording career like this again." - The New York Times "
Tony Bennett, who celebrated his 90th birthday on August 3, 2016, is one of only a handful of artists to have new albums charting in each of the last seven decades. He has introduced a multitude of songs into the Great American Songbook that have since become standards, and has received 19 Grammy Awards, including for his signature song, “ I Left My Heart In San Francisco.”
In 1999, Mr. Bennett, along with his wife Susan Benedetto, a former public school teacher, founded Exploring the Arts (ETA) to strengthen the role of the arts in public high school education. ETA’s first endeavor was the establishment of Frank Sinatra School of the Arts, a public high school founded in 2001 in partnership with the NYC Department of Education. ETA currently partners with a network of 33 public high schools—27 in all five boroughs of New York City and 6 schools in East and South Central Los Angeles.
