Mapleton youth wins Arbor Day tree poster contest

Emma Beach, a fourth-grader at Mapleton Elementary, recently won the Sweepstakes Award for the Utah Arbor Day Tree Poster Contest.

The enviable sun, surf and sand of Southern California became even more famous than they already were when The Beach Boys sprang onto the music scene in the mid-1960s and gave new meaning to the sounds of summer.

Their hits became legendary as did the members of the band, and their signature harmonies and upbeat melodies evoke the dream of an endless season of fun in the sun.

r

A new generation of singers devoted to the Beach Boys’ sound has regenerated the California spirit and taken it countrywide as a tribute to the original California dreamers.

r

Called Good Vibrations! A Celebration of the Beach Boys, the group will make three appearances at the SCERA Center for the Arts in January and help audiences chase away the winter blues and start off the new year with a bit of musical nostalgia.

r

Tickets for the 7 p.m. Jan. 11, 12 and 13 concerts are available at $14 for adults and $12 for children 3-11 and seniors 65 and older. They may be purchased at www.scera.org, by calling 801-225-ARTS, or in person at SCERA main office weekdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays from noon to 6 p.m.  All tickets are reserved, and SCERA Center is located at 745 S. State St., in Orem.

r

For those interested, SCERA is also offering a pre-show island style dinner from the original Bamboo Hut prior to the Jan. 11 (Thursday) concert in Room 201, next to the theater. The cost will be $10 per person, and tickets must be purchased separately from the concert tickets.

r

The singers comprise much more than a typical tribute band. Close your eyes, and you might swear you are listening to Brian Wilson or Al Jardine, two of the original founders. That’s because the members of Good Vibrations are formers members of the founder’s touring bands. Good Vibrations is a full-scale production complete with era-specific costumes, multi-media video and surfer girls.

r

The concert will offer a bit of nostalgia for people who remember the original ensemble as well as introduce a new generation of listeners to the distinctive sounds of The Beach Boys.

r

In celebration the band’s high energy hits, prepare to hear such classics as “Surfin’ USA,” “I Get Around,” “Help Me Rhonda,” “California Girls,” “Wouldn’t It Be Nice,” “Fun, Fun, Fun,” “Barbara Ann,” “Kokomo” and, not surprisingly, “Good Vibrations.”

r

“We booked this concert purposefully in January,” says Adam J. Robertson, SCERA’s President and CEO. “We want to bring a little summer to Utah winter, and with an authentic, retro look, you might even believe you’ve been transported back in time.”
