Strawberry Fields

Beatlemania will come to life when the world renowned Beatles tribute band Strawberry Fields headlines Songs4Sight 2020 to benefit the Center for Vision Loss on Thursday, April 30.

Presented by Provident Bank, Songs4Sight 2020 is the Center for Vision Loss’ second annual concert event. St. Luke’s University Health Network is the event’s Signature Sponsor. Doors open at 6 p.m., and the concert starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are on sale now at Songs4Sight.com at $23 and $29. Fans also can bid on exciting silent auction gift packages throughout the night.

Strawberry Fields consists of cast members from the Broadway and touring company of the hit musical, “Beatlemania.” The four acclaimed musicians deliver a unique theatrical experience, complete with costumes and vintage instrumentation, as they take audiences on a chronological journey through The Beatles’ timeless catalogue. The group has performed around the world and holds the record for the longest-running Beatles show on Broadway, having performed its legendary “Beatles Brunch” for 18 consecutive years at BB King’s in Times Square.

After a well-received Songs4Sight premiere in March 2019, the Center for Vision Loss partnered with ArtsQuest to expand the event’s reach. Event proceeds benefit the agency and its programs – which advance personal independence for the visually impaired and promote healthy eyesight for kids and adults.

“We’re delighted to bring the Songs4Sight concert to SteelStacks and to collaborate with ArtsQuest on this meaningful event,” said Douglas Yingling, Executive Director of the Center for Vision Loss. “Not only does Songs4Sight provide resources for us to carry out our mission, its music is something that everyone can enjoy equally, regardless of their visual capabilities. As we promote independence, dignity and hope for people with vision loss, experiences like these enrich the quality of life that no visual impairment can take away.”

Additional sponsorship opportunities are available. Interested companies and groups should contact the agency’s Advancement office at 610.433.6018, Ext. 241.

With campuses in the Lehigh Valley and Monroe County, the Center for Vision Loss offers support, skills education and rehabilitation services at little or no cost for people with vision loss. It also provides free vision screenings for children and promotes eye health and safety throughout the community. The agency combines a tradition of service inspired directly by iconic activist Helen Keller in 1928 with contemporary practices and state-of-the-art technologies. The Center for Vision Loss is the only organization of its kind in Pennsylvania’s Lehigh, Northampton, and Monroe counties and the only provider accredited by the Pennsylvania Association for the Blind (PAB) in its communities.
