The Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra aims to give audiences a little 1960s flashback and a happy heart with this weekend's i>Music of the Baby Boomers concerts. They think that a revue of tunes by The Beatles, the Beach Boys, Motown's finest, Frankie Valli, Burt Bacharach and others, conducted by Jack Everly, is going to transport us all to a magical time when radio was king and the dance floor brought all races, classes and creeds together. That may be the case, and they may be successful
as long as there arent any painful reminders of certain wars: Elvis fans versus Beatles fans, the Mods-Rockers Conflict and that attempted treaty between falsetto singers and natural baritones. It could get ugly in the parking lot. Performances are 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday at Bass Performance Hall, Fourth and Calhoun streets in Fort Worth. Tickets are $24 to $76. Call 817-665-6000 or visit fwsymphony.org.
Feb. 8-9, 8 p.m.; Sun., Feb. 10, 2 p.m., 2008
