HARRISON, N.Y. Former Broadway performers are joining with members of the Harrison High School chorus and orchestra to help raise money for a yearly music festival trip. The two factions will take the stage Saturday for Beatlemania the Tribute.
The audience will get to experience what is was like to be at a Beatles concert at different stages of the bands career, said Annamarie Mastroberardino, a Harrison High School Chorus Parents Association member. All the standard favorite Beatles tunes from "She Loves You" to "Eleanor Rigby " to " Hey Jude" will be performed, along with a multimedia presentation.
The show will feature four stars from Broadways Beatlemania and Rain performing 35 Beatles songs.
The best part of this event is that it will introduce children to the history of the Beatles while providing a trip down memory lane for many adults, Mastroberardino said. It will also allow the Harrison High School students in the chorus, orchestra and dance programs an opportunity to perform on stage with the band.
Mastroberardino is hopeful enough money will be raised for the school chorus and orchestras yearly trip to the Heritage Music Festival .
Although we do many fund-raising events throughout the year, this is our first attempt at a benefit concert, she said. Our main goal for producing this concert is to raise enough money to allow all students in chorus and orchestra the opportunity to attend the Heritage Musical Festival.
Tickets are on sale for The Beatles tribute concert and cost $25, $32.50, or $40. The event will take place at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 13 at the Harrison High School Performing Arts Center. The doors will open at 7 p.m. and a meet-and-greet with the band will follow the show.
