Together again: The Fab Fourever and the Chilliwack Metropolitan Orchestra perform together on Mar. 10, at 7:30 p.m. at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre.

The Chilliwack Metropolitan Orchestra is teaming up with the Fab Fourever for a rockin’ good time

A popular Beatles tribute band, the Fab Fourever last performed with the CMO six years ago

It’s been nearly six years since they were together last, but all that’s about to change when the Fab Fourever steps on the HUB Theatre stage with the Chilliwack Metropolitan Orchestra (CMO) for an exciting night of classical rock ‘n’ roll on Mar. 10.

One of Canda’s foremost Beatles tribute bands, the Fab Fourever has traversed the globe twisting and shouting for fanatic crowds: they were also invited to play in Liverpool’s 2015 Beatleweek in front of an audience representing more than 50 countries worldwide. And now they’re back in Chilliwack.

“This is one of our favourite theatres to play (in),” said Jody Tennant, who plays Paul McCartney on stage. “The audience knows their music (and) they’re always right on the beat!”

The first time the Fab Fourever performed with the Chilliwack Metropolitan Orchestra, it was a sold-out affair that had audiences raving about the performance.

“Once again, this is an exciting endeavour for the CMO,” says Anne Fleming, Orchestra liaison for the concert.

“It’s music most of us grew up with, and many of our orchestra members (haven’t had the chance to) perform this genre of music. It is a great way to bridge the gap between classical music and rock and roll.”

However, with such a huge music repertoire to choose from, the program’s composed of music from the latter half of the Beatles’ legacy. Maestro Gregory Douglas Johnson and the Fab Fourever have put together a program that will not only be timeless in its production, but will appeal to music lovers of all ages.

Tickets to this rockin’ show are $45, and can be purchased in person or online at the ChilliwackCulturalCentre.ca, or by telephone (604-391-SHOW).
