PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Pittsfield High School Band is hosting a concert at at the Robert Boland Theater at Berkshire Community College to raise funds for the band's trip to Quebec, Canada, in late April. This event, "Keep Music Education Alive," has raised thousands of dollars for high school education programs throughout New England.

The Beatlemania Stage Show will be performing the complete Beatles experience from the Ed Sullivan days right through to the Magical Mystery Tour, Sgt. Pepper and Abbey Road with original costume changes and authentic Beatles instruments. The musicians from Beatlemania have performed professionally alongside the likes of Carly Simon, Hall and Oates, BJ Thomas, Kiss, Todd Rundgren and others. Band members have also written songs with Cher, Billy Joel, Michael Bolton and Joan Jett and several movie sound tracks which included "Wayne's World" and "Light of Day."
 
The concert will be held April 5 at 7:30 p.m.  The Pittsfield High School music students will be performing live with the Beatlemania musicians during the concert on some songs.
 
"This event is both educational and a fun way for the Pittsfield High School Music Department to raise money and will be a great experience for the students to perform with a professional group of musicians," Pittsfield High Band Director Ron Lively said.
 
The proceeds will be used to support the Pittsfield High School Band that enrolls students in the marching band, jazz ensemble and music theory. The Pittsfield High Band has over 50 students enrolled in the school music program.
 
"You never know who will be the next John, Paul, George or Ringo or in fact the next number-one hit group," Lively said.
 
Tickets for the show are available at www.purplepass.com or by calling 1-800-316-8559.
