BEAVER FALLS -- Paul McCartney music, Broadway show tunes and '50s-'60s rock 'n' roll hits are on tap for the Beaver Valley Community Concert Association's 2015-16 concert series. Subscriptions go on sale Sunday for the four-show lineup, which, as always, offers a variety of live music and colorful storytelling in the Beaver Falls Middle School Auditorium.
Sept. 28 --"Wonderful Wizard of Song," an off-Broadway multimedia show celebrating the life and music of Harold Arlen ("Somewhere Over the Rainbow"). Produced by BVCCA regulars Matt Davenport Productions, with a multitalented cast of five accompanied by piano and bass.
Nov. 5 -- Brian Roman, a singer whose repertoire includes Frank Sinatra, Tom Jones, Elvis Presley, Neil Diamond, Paul Anka, Rod Stewart and Van Morrison.
April 27, 2016 -- "Bandstand Boogie," featuring the Diamonds, a quartet that sings rock 'n' roll from the 1950s and early '60s, including their original lineup's million-seller "Little Darlin'."
May 17, 2016 -- "The McCartney Years." A tribute show re-creating the magic of a 1970s-era Paul McCartney & Wings concert, which also includes Beatles gems such as "Let it Be" and "The Long and Winding Road."
While boasting of famous and familiar songs, the four-show series still is capable of expanding musical minds, BVCCA spokeswoman Rhonda Ficca said.
"As Americans, we need to know about all genres of music," Ficca said. "Adults can bring their grandchildren to any one of these shows and be educated with world-class entertainment of classic songs." Ficca said Roman "will remind us all about being a dreamer with his incredible voice, as he left his insurance job to pursue music. He was one of our biggest hits a couple years ago and is back by popular demand." The Diamonds, too, are back because so many people thoroughly enjoyed their last Beaver Falls show, Ficca said. "We anticipate another extraordinary season that will appeal to all ages," she said.
