A Beatles Retrospective:

The Choral Arts Society of Southeastern Wisconsin (CAS) will present one of its most popular concerts, a Beatles program entitled “A Long and Winding Road” on Saturday, April 22nd 7PM at EAA Chapter 838 Museum, 3333 N. Green Bay Road in Racine. This highly anticipated show rounds out CAS’s 36th season of presenting live music programs. In 1962, Ringo Starr joined the Beatles, completing the famous Fab Four! The 2022-23 season marks the 60th Anniversary of the forming of this iconic quartet. Lennon and McCartney would go on to write hundreds of the most memorable songs of the 1960s. CAS will present a program featuring the rich and diversely orchestrated songs of the era’s most popular songwriting duo. Local legends Mark Paffrath and Marvin Dykhuis will lead the way, recreating an unforgettable era in music making. With strings, horns, and a full rock band, the CAS will present an evening of music that will be true to the sound the Beatles created in their recording studio. The program will include such iconic songs as Eleanor Rigby, All You Need is Love, Yesterday, Blackbird, and Here Comes The Sun. Early classics, like Hard Day’s Night, Michelle, and I Wanna’ Hold Your Hand, will also be a part of the program, as well as some of the 60’s most epic tunes, Hey Jude, The Long and Winding Road, and Let it Be. Lesser-known gems including Julia, While My Guitar Gently Weeps, and There’s A Place, and John Lennon’s stunning Good Night complete the program. “We completely sold out our venue the last time we did a Beatles program four years ago. We had to turn people away at the door,” explained CAS’s distinguished Director, James Schatzman. “This year’s program will be even better with an expanded repertoire and additional musicians. This program will be the concert event of the year! The world’s most memorable songs performed by Racine’s most gifted artists. This program should not be missed!” Join us as we celebrate the songs of one of music’s most famous quartets with some of Racine’s most celebrated musicians! Tickets: Adult/Senior $25, Child $7. Advance tickets are available at Personal Touch by Julie Florist in Racine – 5445 Spring Street – with cash or check or online at www.choralartsonline.org. To contact the Choral Arts Society, email [email protected] or call 262-634-3250. Advanced ticket purchase is highly recommended as this concert will likely sell out. This program is supported in part by a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin and the National Endowment for the Arts, a grant from the Racine Community Foundation, a grant from the Racine Arts Council ArtSeed Grants Program with funds provided by the Wisconsin Arts Board and the Racine Arts Council, and the generous support of individual donors and private foundations.
