The year was 1966. The Beatles were flourishing and produced their seventh studio
album, Revolver, spinning their creative power into a 14-song sonic explosion.
The year is 2016. Beatlemore Skidmania's student organizers are focusing on Revolver, and on the poster and T-shirt design by Ben Cohen '17.
This year's Beatlemore commemorates 1966, from productivity and popularity to death threats, incidents in the Philippines, and a finale at San Francisco's Candlestick Park, and from "Day Tripper" and "I Feel Fine" to "Paperback Writer" and "Long Tall Sally."
Public performances take place in the Arthur Zankel Music Center on Friday, Nov. 18, at 8 p.m. and Saturday, Nov. 19, at 2 and 8 p.m. Tickets, available online or at the Zankel box office, are $10 for adults, $7 for seniors and the Skidmore community, and $5 for students.
Beatlemore is again donating ticket, poster, and T-shirt proceeds to the Skidmore Cares holiday-season charity drive. And the concerts will again be livestreamed so that alumni and others can watch from around the US and the world.
