From our friends at Strathmore...

Strathmore Presents Strathmore Children's Chorus Meets the Beatles

Strathmore signature youth ensembles revisit the Fab Four with beloved local tribute group the DeafAids

The Strathmore Children’s Chorus and Maryland Classic Youth Orchestras of Strathmore hop aboard their yellow submarine to revisit the enduring hits of The Beatles, with help from the Rocky Hill Middle School Choirs and local favorite Fab Four tribute band the DeafAids in the Music Center at Strathmore on Wednesday, June 8, 2016 at 7:30 PM. Even 46 years after the band broke up, the treasured music of The Beatles is ubiquitous and loved by generations. This convergence of youth ensembles falls in love with the iconic band as it peruses 20 hummable hits from the prolific Beatles song catalogue, including “Hey Jude,” “Eleanor Rigby,” “Across the Universe,” “Here Comes the Sun,” and more.

In a departure from their typical classical repertoire, the Strathmore Children's Chorus has been studying the music of The Beatles this season, in a quest to discover why it has stood the test of time to thrill generations of music lovers.

The Strathmore Children’s Chorus (SCC) provides a pre-professional choral experience in Montgomery County for students ages 7–18. Under the direction of Founding Conductor and Artistic Director Christopher G. Guerra and Training Chorus Associate Director Mary Hochkeppel, four ensembles (Training Chorus, Treble Chorus, Concert Chorus, and Young Men’s Chorus) promote self-expression in singers, celebrate the diverse musical traditions of our community, and engage talented youth in joy-filled and uplifting music-making. SCC also performs with professional orchestras, other choral groups, and featured artists in ensemble performances, allowing Strathmore to provide a living, breathing, singing presence in our community.
