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 global 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.
