Concertgoers will hear what it might sound like if the Beatles performed with a full symphony orchestra. “The super Broadway musical Beatlemania produced some really talented look-a-likes for the Beatles, and they sing, dance and play just like the band,” Mark Jeffers, Director or Entertainment at Paragon, waxed enthusiastically. “They do it all with the help of a full symphony. Think of Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club with that kind of accompaniment,” continued Jeffers.
A benefit concert for the ASO, this is bound to be the concert of the season. Maestro Mariusz Smolij is the fifth conductor of the orchestra, which is renown for its high artistic quality. The well-respected symphonic group is dedicated to promoting the presentation of music from master works to pops. “This concert tours across the nation, and it will be it’s only performance in Marksville, so Beatle lovers need to make plans to attend today,” commented Jeffers.
