Aug. 03--BEAVER FALLS -- From Music City and a bunch of "Jersey Boys," to ol' Blue Eyes and a rising pop-opera talent, a wide span of music will be celebrated in the Beaver Valley Community Concert Association's 2014-15 season.

Four concerts are slated for the Beaver Falls Middle School Auditorium, starting Sept. 15 with "Live from Nashville" starring singers and dancers from Matt Davenport Productions performing to songs ranging from Hank Williams and Patsy Cline to today's country stars.

The next show, Oct. 15, features Fernando Varela, who finished fourth out of 75,000 hopefuls on NBC's "America's Got Talent," and is under the tutelage of musical star-maker David Foster.

"The pop-opera crossover tenor Fernando Varela show is going to blow you out of your seat," BVCCA spokeswoman Rhonda Ficca said. "We were lucky to book him, and even Barbra Streisand says he's going to be a star."

The BVCCA season continues in 2015 with a March 23 "Simply Sinatra" show starring Las Vegas and national touring artist Steve Lippia backed by a 10-piece band.

The April 30 season finale, "Let's Hang On," features eight seasoned entertainers preserving the music and style of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons.

All concerts begin at 7:30 p.m.

Season subscriptions are $40 for adults and $10 for students.

Individual tickets at the door cost $20 for adults and $5 for students.
