Feb. 9 registration deadline nears for WCC Beatles road trip
Local musician Chuck Dingée leads the Feb. 21 tour to Seattle Symphony tribute
Bellingham, Wash. – Grab a ticket to ride and join Whatcom Community College for a Sunday, Feb. 21 winter road trip to hear James Owen’s Classical Mystery Tour live with the Seattle Symphony. The tribute band will play classic Beatles’ tunes in concert with the full symphony orchestra at Benaroya Hall in Seattle. Registration deadline is noon Feb. 9. As an added bonus, Chuck Dingée – co-founder of the Walrus, a popular Bellingham band known for their renditions of Beatles’ songs – will lead the tour.
The event begins at 9 a.m. Feb. 21 at WCC with an orientation exploring how The Beatles changed music. At 10 a.m., participants will select comfortable seats to travel via motor coach with WCC’s day-trip partner Bellair Charters. Dingée promises to bring his guitar for Beatles’ sing-alongs as the coach travels to Seattle. Once at Benaroya Hall, there will be time for lunch (not included in registration fee) before the show begins at 2 p.m. The tour leaves Seattle for Bellingham at 4:30 p.m. Per-person cost for this special winter road trip is $95, which includes the orientation, show ticket and transportation.
