The Faith Fellowship Church on Seminary Street is hosting a number of young musicians next week in a fundraiser for a local charity and a tribute to what many people consider to be the greatest rock and roll band ever. It’s The Beatles 50th Anniversary celebration concert, as performed by the Alton High School Symphonic Orchestra, Celebrations, and Wind Symphony, along with the Faith Fellowship band and some special guests.
Tom Pullen, music director at the church, says it’s like the venue was destined to host a Beatles-inspired performance at some point.
