If you have been a regular Encore Band Concert attender, you probably have heard Al sing.
Al was born in 1937 in Montreal. His original name is Sam Fitleberg. But he would rather be called “Al Farrell”. Al likes to sing popular songs of the 70s, 80s, 90s, such as “My Way”, “New York, New York”, “Walking My Baby”. He captures the attention of his audiences with his warm gestures, and makes you feel that you are part of the family.
