It’s the end of the year and that means it’s time for the 21 Hearts One Beat annual Extravaganza.  In two performances, the Contemporary Music Ensemble will hit the stage Thursday and Friday, May 24 and 25, at 7pm. The theater and the band will transport its audiences to Liverpool, England, where the 19 performers will pay tribute to the most popular group of all time, The Beatles.

This group of freshmen, sophomores, juniors and one eighth grader, consists of musicians, singers and songwriters all able to produce one beat and have a love for music. “Like a family, we fight sometimes, but we are a very close, determined group,” says Nicole Chirinos, a singer. She believes it’s that closeness that allows them to create magic on stage.

The concert has become an event that attracts all ages. Last year’s concert lured a huge crowd with a raving Pop theme.

Musicians Michael and Maya

Throughout the year, the group practices once a week, every Friday; although when close to a show, the group rehearses  nearly every day. “Right before the show it’s go-time,” says singer Amaris Rios. “We all work non stop to put on a show.” Musicians say rehearsals can be brutal, at the end, all worth it. “They are my family. We do what we do because love to perform,” says Noah Billante, a junior in CME. Inevitably, expect a performance with passion and talent. While the group has been paid to perform at several festivals, next week it is free for anyone to see them perform at the CFA. Be sure not to miss the Extravaganza next Thursday and Friday at 7:00pm.

    “Picture yourself on a boat on a river with tangerine trees and marmalade skies. Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly, a girl with kaleidoscope eyes.”

    The celebrated, wildly talented, 21 Hearts-One Beat, Miami Country Day School Contemporary Music Ensemble will be reincarnating a collection of Beatles songs. Those in attendance will one day look back and tell others they were there when the now famous (insert name) performed. The incomparable John Wicker lovingly planted the seeds for this performance and during his recent absence Terry Alfonso and Ria Maxwell has given their all to bring this powerful production to the stage. This performance will awaken young aspiring artists and remind parents how the Beatles impacted their lives…truly a magical mystery tour!

    “From one generation to the next, the Beatles will remain the most important rock band of all time.” ~Dave Grohl

    NOW LET’S ROCK!!
