It’s classic rock and roll on April 14, backed by the timeless power of an orchestra.
For the first time, Beatles tribute The Fab Fourever will share a stage at the Cultural Centre with the Chilliwack Metropolitan Orchestra.
Jody Tennant, who performs as Paul McCartney, is calling it “a dream come true.”
“Having the opportunity to play Beatles music accompanied by the CMO is going to be quite a treat for everybody in attendance,” Tennant says.
Fab Fourever has sold out at the Cultural Centre each time it has performed in Chilliwack.
The local Met orchestra with more than 100 players is eagerly anticipating the collaboration.
“This is an exciting endeavour for the CMO,” says spokesperson Wayne Fleming. “It is music that most of us grew up with yet many of our orchestra members have not performed this music in a concert setting.”
Kevin Davey, who performs as John Lennon says: “The show will feature music that the Beatles were unable to reproduce on stage, mainly because of the elaborate orchestral involvement.”
The albums showcased will include Sgt. Pepper, Magical Mystery Tour, the White Album, Let It Be, and Abbey Road.
The Fab Fourever, with The Chilliwack Metropolitan Orchestra, Saturday April 14, at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre, 9201 Corbould Street, Chilliwack.
