Orchestra concert features songs from The Beatles

Saturday, November 16, 2013

Top off your Thanksgiving weekend with a concert by the Everett Philharmonic Orchestra for “kids from 3 to 103.” “IMAGINE!”, led by director Paul-Elliott Cobbs, will be at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 1, at Everett Civic Auditorium, 2415 Colby Ave. in Everett. This is the orchestra’s second performance of the season.

The program will feature “The Beatles Guide to the Orchestra” arranged and orchestrated by Sam Hyken. The show was well-received in Miami, Fla. and is modeled after Benjamin Britten’s popular “Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra.” The instruments of the orchestra will be introduced by individual Beatles tunes, and then the orchestra will all “come together” in a performance of “Hey Jude.” Jannie Meisberger will narrate the performance. In addition, Pianist Nathaniel Cutshall, winner of the Snohomish County Music Teachers Concerto Competition, will perform the “Allegro Con Brio” movement of Beethoven’s “Piano Concerto No. 3” in c minor.
