Listen! Do you want to know a secret? Music lovers from here, there and everywhere are gathering as the Gabriola Chamber Ensemble, under the direction of Leah Hokanson, happily presents the inaugural Gabriola Pops! concert featuring the music of The Beatles. I’ll “Drive My Car” and you can get a “Ticket to Ride” on gorgeous GERTIE, and we’ll all “Come Together” at the Gabriola Community Hall!
“Please Please Me” and come on out to hear many of your favourite Beatles tunes, including unique choral arrangements of “Can’t Buy Me Love,” “Across the Universe,” “Back in the USSR” and “In My Life”; plus, our own string quartet performing “Get Back” like you’ve never heard it before; the debut of the Abbey Road Scholars; solos, duets, sing-a-longs and more! All with “Help!” from our awesome band, including Steve Elder on guitar, Antonio Gradanti on drums and Tim Harrison on bass. “Let it Be!”
So “Hey Jude,” take “The Long and Winding Road” (or the short and hilly one), “Follow the Sun” and join us. “All You Need is Love” and some great music with the Gabriola Pops! Ensemble. “Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da!”
Questions? “We Can Work it Out.” Just call Sue Gould at 250-247-2013. See you at the show! “PS I Love You.”
