Gabriola Island programs.
Gabriola Songs is pleased to announce a partnership with the Gabriola Lions to produce a 2020 online fundraising concert called Concert On The Screen – Music Of The Beatles. As per usual it will be on a Thursday night. August 13 – 7 pm. We are still laughing how well the name works! This is the Lions anual “Concert On The Green” fundraiser to raise money for the Gabriola community.
The actual concert will occur in a physically distanced performance space and be shown on-line using ZOOM. To go to the concert we will be providing an online ticket service where you buy a link to the show. There will also be a donate button to give money directly to the Gabriola Lions. Concert goers will have the chance to clap, and be seen if they choose to. The exciting part is the whole Isand is invited to watch the same show at the same time. It will also be a great oppourtunity to thank the frontline workers and celebrate our fantastic community. And of course, fundraise for the Gabriola Lions who do so much for our Gabriola Island.
Secretly we have been working for months on a replacement show for the annual Lions Concert On The Green Fundraiser. Once the name Concert On The Screen was hatched we have been busy putting all the behind the scene stuff together to make an online fundraising concert a reality. In the tradition of having cover bands perform at Concert On The Green, we have enlisted an all star Beatles Band of Gabriola musicians. The whole story is we were going to be doing a big Beatles Music concert in June at the Community hall. You know the rest of that story.
Here’s what we have so far:
