The Center for Vision Loss has rescheduled its Songs4Sight 2020 concert event, presented by Provident Bank, for Thursday, June 25, in concern for public health and safety during the national COVID-19 emergency.

Produced in partnership with ArtsQuest, the concert by the world-renowned Beatles tribute band Strawberry Fields will be held in the Musikfest Café at SteelStacks in Bethlehem with revised event times. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. with a silent auction, and the show will begin at 8 p.m.

Tickets purchased for the event’s original April 30 date will be honored. Ticket holders who cannot make the June 25 date can request refunds directly from ArtsQuest. Tickets remain on sale at Songs4Sight.com and start at $23 each. More than 300 of the event’s 470 seats have been sold presently to sponsors and ticket holders, said Dennis Zehner, the agency’s Executive Director-Elect and Director of Advancement.

Strawberry Fields consists of cast members from the Broadway and touring companies of the hit “Beatlemania” musical. Their use of costumes, and vintage instrumentation and amplification, delivers a truly authentic experience as they take audiences of all ages on a chronological journey through the Beatles legendary career. The band’s shows are considered widely as the closest experience one can get to seeing The Beatles perform live.

The Center for Vision Loss empowers people with visual impairments to seize their independence and promotes healthy eyesight. With campuses in the Lehigh Valley and Monroe County, it combines a service tradition inspired directly by Helen Keller in 1928 with contemporary practices and state-of-the-art technologies. The Center for Vision Loss brings hope in focus with personal and peer support, classes and activities that promote skills and a greater quality of life, specialized transportation for medical and grocery needs, rehabilitation services, and low vision care centers with specialty magnifiers and devices. It prepares successful learners with preschool vision screenings, and it encourages eyesight preservation through community education. It provides services at little or no cost, and more than 80% of its clients with vision loss are from low-income households.

The Center for Vision Loss is the only service agency in the Lehigh Valley and Monroe County approved by the Pennsylvania Association for the Blind (PAB). It also is accredited by the Association for Education and Rehabilitation of the Blind and Visually Impaired (AER) and is a member of the VisionServe Alliance, a network of nearly 120 North American agencies that provide services to people with impaired sight.
