Beatlemore Skidmania 2012

beatlemore skidmania 2012 logoSkidmore's annual Beatlemore Skidmania show is coming up November 16 (Friday) and 17 (Saturday) at the Zankel Center. The shows are very popular and sell out. The backstory:

Featuring talented student groups who reinterpret Beatles' classics in extraordinarily inventive ways, Beatlemore Skidmania was launched just weeks after 9/11 when a group of students in Skidmore music Professor Gordon Thompson's Beatles seminar course staged a Beatles tribute concert in an effort to lift their spirits. The show has evolved into a major event that brings together the Skidmore and Saratoga communities and has invariably sold out in recent years.
Proceeds from the sale of tickets, T-shirts, and posters will go toward Skidmore Cares, a program established by the college in 2006 to help area residents in need through donations of food and money to local food pantries and other non-profit organizations.

Here's the lineup for this year's show.

Tickets for the public are now on sale -- they're $8; $5 for seniors/Skidmore faculty/staff/retirees/alumni; and $3 for students.

I am so very thankful for the wonderful people who wandered in and out of my life over the last few years. They have given me the love and support I need to survive and thrive. Last year at this time I was at my lowest. By the grace of all that is good in my life, I have climbed out and I'm happier than I've been in a very, very long time.
