BEAVER FALLS -- Tickets are on sale for the annual Beaver Valley Community Concert Association concert series.
The 2016-17 series at the Beaver Falls Middle School Auditorium includes four nationally touring acts:
The Four Lads, Sept. 20.
Mac Frampton presents "That Mancini Magic," Nov. 10.
Tenore, April. 27, 2017.
Equinox Little Big Band, May 11, 2017.
All concerts begin at 7:30 p.m.
"We are very excited as usual about our upcoming season, but especially thrilled to bring back two acts," Beaver Valley Community Concert Association publicist Rhonda Ficca said.
"The Four Lads were a huge hit in 2009, and so we want our subscribers to know we hear their suggestions. We have enjoyed concert pianist Mac Frampton back in seasons 2000-01, '05-06 and '09-10. Now Frampton is performing “That Mancini Magic” which will be a musical extravaganza with the rhythm section of bass and percussion. Our local connection to Henry Mancini -- the multi-faceted composer, conductor and arranger who attended Aliquippa High School -- enhances the excitement for this show as we hear music from his film and television scores."
Individual tickets for each show cost $20 (students pay $5).
BVCC Membership, which includes a ticket to all four shows, costs $50 (students pay $10).
For advance tickets, mail a check or money order to Membership Chair Peg Denhart, 604 Sixth Ave., (Patterson Heights), Beaver Falls, PA 15010. For further questions, call Denhart at 724-843-2941.
The Four Lads trace their history to 1950 when the original group was signed by Columbia Records as backing singers who performed on several hits including Johnnie Ray's chart-topping "Cry." The Toronto group's first gold record on its own, "Istanbul (Not Constantinople)" found new life in 1990 when remade as a hit by alt-rock band They Might Be Giants.
Concert pianist Frampton has played with the Boston Pops and symphonies in St. Louis, Milwaukee, New Orleans, Cincinnati and Atlanta, as well as sharing the stage with Glen Campbell and Roberta Flack.
Tenore sings classical pop-era songs, and has won Canada's GMA and Covenant awards for faith-based artists.
The Equinox Little Big Band has been described as "a cross between 'Prairie Home Companion' and the 'Dean Martin Variety Show'" by Hazleton, Pa., newspaper the Standard Speaker. The group's covers range from Bobby Darin, Frank Sinatra, Harry Connick Jr., Roy Orbison, Ray Charles and Johnny Mercer.
