PLYMOUTH — The Plymouth Canton Symphony Society, under award-winning music director and conductor Nan Washburn, will present a “A Beatles Blast!”, a special benefit concert, at 8 p.m. Feb. 21 at the historic Penn Theatre in downtown Plymouth.
A substantial ensemble of PSO musicians — with the newly-minted moniker “Friends of the Plymouth of Symphony Orchestra” — are donating their services to help support the numerous music education programs the PCSS brings to the Plymouth, Canton and Northville communities. To help keep these programs going strong, come out to hear classic rock-‘n’-roll, symphonic style, featuring plenty of “Fab Four” songs — plus much-loved tunes by Simon & Garfunkel, the Beach Boys, Barry Manilow, and Billy Joel.
This concert is sponsored by New Liberty Bank and Hines Park Lincoln Mercury, with additional support from the Plymouth Symphony League, the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs, the National Endowment for the Arts, and from the dedicated support of our donors and patrons.
New Liberty Bank and Lotus Arts Gallery will be hosting a pre-concert cocktail party at Lotus Arts Gallery from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. The purchase of a ticket also automatically enters patrons for a chance to win a collection of valuable CD box-sets of the featured musicians.
Tickets are $100 per person, with a 10-percent discount for groups of eight or more, and are 100-percent tax deductible due to the donation of services. Tickets may be purchased by contacting the Plymouth Canton Symphony Society office by phone at 734-451-2112, by visiting www.plymouthsymphony.org, or in person at 470 Forest Ave., Suite 18, Plymouth.
The Plymouth Canton Symphony Society is a non-profit organization that does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, sex, age, handicap, national origin or creed.
