Skidmore is full of its coveted traditions: Big Show, Fun Day, and, of course, Beatlemore. This all-things-Beatles concert is a high attendance event for both the student body and the Saratoga community. Those in charge of planning the shows, Sami Hutchinson ’20, L. Esther Hibbs ’20, Katelyn Reichheld ’20, and Artist in Resident, Joel Brown, have spent months getting everything ready so the show will be as enjoyable as we all know it to be.
Beatlemore 2018 is set to kick off with 14 acts, some student-formed bands, and others like Skidmore's own acapella groups. The show will be focusing on the White Album, which is sure to transport the Skidmore community and greater Saratoga area to 1968 this Friday, Nov. 16, with an 8 p.m. show, and two more the following day, at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m.
This weekend, I had the opportunity to perform with the Klezmer Band in this year’s Bealtemore Skidmania, a quintessential Skidmore show in which students showcase their interpretations of some of The Beatles' music. As someone who has wanted to be part of the show since I first saw it in 2015, I was beyond excited to get a behind-the-scenes experience.
In what seems like a whirlwind, Beatlemore Skidmania has come and gone as the weekend of Nov. 17 comes to an end. Every year, Skidmore students and the Saratoga community come together to celebrate a certain era of The Beatles. The 17th annual show celebrated Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, as well as the transcendent single “Strawberry Fields Forever.
Skidmore music lovers and musicians will gather for the 15th annual Beatlemore Skidmania concerts on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 20 and 21.

A Skidmore-only show is planned for 8 p.m. Saturday.
