Now in its sixth summer, Brookline Music School’s Beatles Summer Project will continue its tradition of recreating iconic Beatles albums with Abbey Road. A cast of forty talented vocalists and instrumentalists will come together for the performance on Sunday, August 4, 2019 at 11:00am at the historic Coolidge Corner Theatre. Each year, the Project brings together local musicians of all ages and skill levels to celebrate the Beatles by learning, rehearsing, and performing a featured Beatles album from start to finish. This year’s featured album is Abbey Road. Released in September 1969, the album celebrates its 50th anniversary this year and was the last studio recording the Beatles completed as a group.
John Purcell, Brookline Music School’s Jazz & Rock Ensemble Coordinator and Director of the Beatles Summer Project, is looking forward to reimagining the album this year. “[We] did this album a few years ago,” said Purcell, “so I’m excited to take a new angle for this performance.”
Audiences can expect a full-length re-creation of the album and a mix of big production numbers, and “unplugged” acoustic performances. Tickets are available for $10 each online at www.coolidge.org/films/brookli.... Seating is limited, so purchasing tickets in advance is recommended.
Since 1924, Brookline Music School has provided excellence in music education to the greater Boston community. Call now to join the tradition.
Brookline Music School welcomes students of all ages and ability. Enrollment is open year-round so students may begin private lesson study at any time (including the summer).
