string quartet with their instruments(Nov. 16, 2023) CHS senior Griff O’Connor (viola), junior Judah Blitstein (violin) and sophomores Adora Abdul (violin) and Will Edgar (cello) will join professional musicians onstage for the touring show “Beatles vs. Stones - A Musical Showdown” at Keswick Theatre on Dec. 1. The string quartet will perform six songs with Satisfaction (the Rolling Stones tribute band) and Abbey Road (the Beatles tribute band) in an epic showdown. The production includes multimedia, period costumes and vintage instruments. 

The producers sent an inquiry to CHS Orchestra Director Matthew Hoy for student musicians who could hold their own with the pros in front of an audience. Members of the quartet belong to many prestigious local ensembles and consistently earned positive reviews at performances and festivals. “Beatles vs. Stones” often reaches out to local high school orchestras and offers a donation to the school’s music program in exchange for student participation.
