OHS musicians will be part of Admiral’s ‘In My Life’ show

There’ll be not one, but two quartets on stage when the show “In My Life — A Musical Theatre Tribute to the Beatles” returns to the Admiral Theatre at 7 p.m. Oct. 13.

First, there’s the Beatles tribute band Abbey Road play the parts of John, Paul George and Ringo in the show. They’ll be accompanied on five songs by a local foursome, the Olympic High School String Quartet.

Violinists Julia Macazo and Cecilia Alvarado, bassist Myron David and violist Megan Gardner (clockwise from top left in the photo) will offer string accompaniment for
“Eleanoohs-quartetr Rigby,” “Yesterday,” “A Day in the Life,” “Hello Goodbye” and “Hey Jude,” according to information provided by the show’s producers.

This is the second time a OHS quartet has been brought on for “In My Life,” students also performing in 2014 after the show’s producers contacted OHS instrumental music director Paul Williams looking for a referral. This actually is the show’s third time in Bremerton after making its Admiral debut in 2013.

“When we find a strong program like the Olympic High School orchestra, we seek them out year after year,” said producer Andy Nagle.

The show is critically acclaimed, including one review from the Orange County (Calif.) Register that enthused, “If you see one tribute show, see this one — smart and loads of fun.”

Macazo is the only senior with the quartet this year; Alvarado, Gardner and David all are juniors.
