When the touring show Beatles vs. Stones – A Musical Showdown comes to the Marathon Center for the Performing Arts on Thursday, September 19 at 7:30 pm, the Findlay High School String Quartet will have the privilege of joining the professional musicians on stage to add some orchestral texture to the evening. The show pits Rolling Stones tribute band Satisfaction against rival Brit boys Abbey Road in an all-out musical showdown for rock dominance. The Findlay show is part of a 125 city tour of the U.S., Canada and Australia. The Findlay High School String Quartet is comprised of violinist Ethan Zheng and Ethan Bodnarik, both sophomores, violist Nick Lloyd, also a sophomore, and cellist Megan Earhart, senior. “‘Hey Jude’ is definitely one of my favorites and I like playing it too,” said Bodnarik. “I have always liked ‘Here Comes The Sun’, my mom really likes that song too so I of course like it,” said Earhart. The students are all members of the Findlay High School Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Ken Pressel and Anita Schaible.
