The strings are tuned, Sgt. Pepper is in the house, and the band is ready to play!
All Together Now, a musical benefit supporting arts education in Alameda public schools, is tomorrow (Thursday) night and today is the last day to purchase advance discount tickets. Advance tickets are $40 and include a free drink ticket. Wait until Thursday, and tickets will be $50 (but still well worth it!). Online tickets may be purchased today until midnight at www.alamedaeducation.org.
All Together Now is an evening of music, dancing, food and wine celebrating the importance of arts education. The evening is headlined by popular Beatles tribute band, The Sun Kings, who will be joined by Alameda student musicians playing “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” in its entirety. This FABulous party begins at 6:30 p.m., Thursday Nov. 10, at the historic Alameda Theatre.
ALL proceeds from this event go directly to music, art and drama support at Alameda public schools. Funds from last year's benefit helped repair and replace musical instruments, pay play production costs, and purchase art supplies. We have wonderful arts programs in our schools, but they need our help — let's all rock out to support them!
