Liverpool Legends to invade WHS

(Continued)

WASHINGTON —

Music programs are seeing major cuts in funding and many schools’ programs have been either cut or drastically reduced but “Help Keep Music Alive” isn’t just about raising money to support music programs.

“We can’t change the world. We just want to do something for someone,” said Scott. “Maybe we will inspire a kid to go into music or the arts and if we do, then it’s all worth it.” Harrison added, “I hope they (the students) will each take this with them as a lesson for how to deal with all of life’s problems with peace, love and music.”

Harrison, 82, who is quite active in the Liverpool Legends and just returned with the band from a touring event in Israel, said both her “mum” and dad were the original “Beatle Boosters.”

“They not only supported the lads but also answered thouands of fan letters, telling me, ‘It is our responsibility as family to give back the love.’”

Both Harrison and Scott encourage students wanting to pursue music as a career to work hard and apply themselves, and never give up. Most importantly they said, “Only do it because you love what you are doing not to get rich. Rich has nothing to do with lots of money.”

The concert will be held at 7:30 p.m. Friday at the Washington High School auditorium. About 200 tickets remain for the event and can be purchased in advance for $25 by calling 254-1598. Tickets will also be available at the door for $30.
