Coming this spring from MOS:
Registration for The Ninth Annual Michael O’Neal Summer Singers has begun!
Visit www.mosingers.com/concerts/summer-singers-2013 to read about the program and enroll. This year’s program is entitled How Can I Keep From Singing? Songs from the Heart. Folk songs, folk hymns, and spirituals are often personal statements of love, longing, joy, and sadness – in other words, many of the things that make us human. The Summer Singers will explore all these emotions in Aaron Copland’s Old American Songs, the celebrated folk hymn arrangements of Robert Shaw and Alice Parker, and the extraordinary arrangements of spirituals by Moses Hogan.

A BEATLES TRIBUTE with The Return tribute band

Tickets $15 and $20 in advance; $17 and $22 at the door.
$50 Artist Circle tickets are also available in advance.
The Beatles were formed in Liverpool, England in 1960, and became the premier pop ensemble of that decade. The music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr was rooted in 1950s rock and roll, but utilized many genres, ranging from pop ballads to psychedelic rock. Such songs as I Want to Hold Your Hand, A Hard Day’s Night, and Yesterday bring back memories for many of us who lived through those turbulent 60s. For all of us, however, young and old alike, the music of the Beatles represents an era of song that is universally enjoyed. The Michael O’Neal Singers will be joined in this concert by the most respected Beatles Tribute band in the business. The Return has been called by Pete Beaudrault, President/CEO of Hard Rock Café, as “absolutely the next best thing to the originals!” The Return has performed all over the world, including the Cavern in Liverpool, Abbey Road Studios in London, and in Japan as headliners at the 40th anniversary celebration of the Beatles visit to Tokyo.
