Cool Cleveland Applauds BW Beatles Rockin' Performance

April 2, 2014

The BW Beatles "rocked the White Album," the last in their four-album annual cycle, at their Friday preview in Fynette Kulas Hall and their Saturday concert in John Patrick Kleist Theatre. Both venues were packed to standing room only and Saturday tickets sold out in less than 40 minutes. Cool Cleveland recounts "there were over 40 people waiting in the lobby for a spare seat. The atmosphere was electric."

Entirely student directed and led by seniors Patrick Hyzy and Jesse Hodgson, 57 multi-talented students and faculty delivered a sensational "note-for-note recreation of The Beatles' 1968 masterpiece."

Videos captured by Cool Cleveland span the entire album from "Back in the U.S.S.R." to "Goodnight." Cool Cleveland also complimented dancers/choreographers Rachel Reszler and Cleo DeOrio on "a moody, sensuous movement piece during Revolution 9on Saturday’s proscenium performance."

Next year, the band will restart the album cycle performing Abbey Road, including a special fifth anniversary performance in the Chamber Hall where their first Abbey Road concert took place.
