Beverly Hills Centennial Concert and Sing Along Features Big Hits, Notable Composers

Marking the city's 100th birthday Jan. 28, the Saban Theatre will host the Los Angeles Lawyers Philharmonic, well known music and composers and special celebrity guest appearances from all who are connected to Beverly Hills.

With a name synonymous with Hollywood as home to the stars, the City of Beverly Hills will be marking its 100th birthday with a celebrity-studded Centennial Concert and Sing Along at the historic Saban Theatre on Jan. 28, featuring musical works and entertainers connected to the city's storied past and present.

Headlining the event will be the acclaimed Los Angeles Lawyers Philharmonic conducted by Maestro Gary S. Greene, Esq. along with his Big Band of Barristers.

Proclaimed by Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa as “L.A.’s Only Legal Orchestra,” the LALP has graced the stage at various world-class venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Shrine Auditorium and now Beverly Hills' own Saban Theatre. It's no secret that an enormous wealth of musical talent has graced Beverly Hills over its 100 years.

The music of such composers as Rogers and Hammerstein, Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, George and Ira Gershwin and dozens more will be performing with guest artists as well as holding an audience sing-along.

Composer Richard Sherman will be on hand to conduct a medley of Sherman Brothers tunes (including music from Mary Poppins). Composer Charles Fox known for Killing Me Softly and a host of television theme songs (Love Boat, Happy Days) will also lead the orchestra in a medley of his greatest hits.

There will be many special celebrity guest participants (all of whom have lived or been associated with Beverly Hills).

The concert will be held on Tuesday, Jan. 28 at 7 p.m. at the Saban Theatre, located at 8440 Wilshire Blvd.

Admission is complimentary. Tickets are required on a first-served assigned seating basis and can be obtained at the Saban Theatre Box Office or by email at bh100concert@gmail.com for a Ticketmaster discreet link.

Consider walking to the event. Enjoy the city even more. From city hall to the theater is 1.47 miles and approximately 44 minutes. Piece of cake.
