I became a fan of the Beatles in high school and I grew to appreciate them even more when I was in my 30’s. I love their catchy tunes, simple harmonies and the emotions their music evokes. To me, there’s nothing like listening to “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” when I need to be inspired or motivated.

Regardless of age, gender, social status or race, the music of the Beatles has entertained and inspired so many of us. As such, it seems logical for me to choose the band for this year’s summer show. Inspired by The Beatles will run July 8 through August 13.
