BEGINNINGS – A TRIBUTE TO THE MUSIC OF CHICAGO

ROCKS THE STOCKTON PERFORMING ARTS CENTER, NOVEMBER 5th  

“Where the Arts Come Alive!”

 

GALLOWAY, NJ, OCTOBER 17, 2016 – The Stockton Performing Arts Center and Beginnings invites audiences to enjoy the greatest hits of Chicago on Saturday, November 5th!  The music of Chicago is truly wonderful – timeless classics that define generations – especially when performed by this talented group of musicians – Beginnings.

Show time is 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $32 and may be ordered online at www.stocktonpac.org or by calling the Box Office at (609) 652-9000. The Box Office is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and ninety minutes before the performance. For Group Sales, call (609) 652-4786.

Songs will include such monster hits as: “Beginnings,” “25 or 6 to 4,” “Make Me Smile,” “Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?,” “Saturday in the Park,” “Feeling Stronger Everyday,” “Question 67 and 68” and “Free.”

In the fall of 2002, Beginnings was born out of the love and respect for the music of one of the greatest American rock bands of all time – Chicago. Forged together by a group of professional musicians, all veterans of the New York music scene, Beginnings, like Chicago, was a labor of love based on musicianship and professionalism. But a funny thing happened on the way to Carnegie Hall… a collaboration blossomed into a non-stop musical odyssey.

Beginnings is a tightly woven structure of intellectual musical talent rarely seen in today’s music world, either in the original or tribute arenas. They are individually talented musicians who together comprise an ever evolving universe of musicality that encompasses multi-instrumentalists and multiple lead vocalists. Quite simply, they are a band like no other.

This depth of talent is focused on the band Chicago, whose song book spans more than forty years, and includes five number 1 albums and twenty top ten hits. Their performances bring to life the music of Chicago, and exceptionally recreate every decade of the band’s hits. Beginnings is a family friendly melodic adventure, pleasing to music lovers of all ages.

For patrons with special needs, the Stockton Performing Arts Center offers wheelchair accessible seating, large type programs, and listening assistive devices.  Please identify any needs you may have when making a reservation.

The Stockton Performing Arts Center, the Jersey Shore’s Center for the Arts, is located on the campus of Stockton University, on Jimmie Leeds Road in Pomona (Galloway Township).  Just 12 miles west of Atlantic City, the Center is easily accessible from the Garden State Parkway and the Atlantic City Expressway. 

This program is made possible in part by funds from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, a partner agency of the National Endowment for the Arts and by funds from the National Endowment for the Arts.
