With Arai's own arrangements of carillon music for the holiday spanning the centuries from Bach to Scott Joplin to John Philip Sousa, the highlight of this year's program will be Sousa's 'Stars and Stripes Forever' played as a duet with Cathedral Carilloneur, Byrl Cinnamon.

The St. John the Evangelist Carillon in Bishop Cross Tower is one of the finest in the world and one of a very few in the Pacific Northwest. The carillon consists of 49 bells, cast and installed by John Taylor & Sons of Loughborough, Leicestershire, England. The bells are played prior to Sunday services, as well as times of religious and civic festivals. Further information about the carillon and the music program at St. John's Cathedral may be found on the Cathedral website:

Enjoying a picnic on a beautiful evening on the lawn across 12th Street from the Cathedral is one of Spokane's hidden treasures. Arai will begin playing his spectacular concert about 9pm.

Tickets on sale now for 'A Hard Day's Night' at the Bing August 20

Meet the Beatles all over again in a one-night-only showing of the revolutionary musical comedy film 'A Hard Day's Night,' Wednesday August 20, 6:30 p.m. at the Bing Crosby Theater in Downtown Spokane. Tickets are $10 general admission, available now from Spokane Public Radio at 509-328-5729.

Just one month after they exploded onto the U.S. scene with their Ed Sullivan appearance, John, Paul, George, and Ringo began working on a project that would bring their talent to the big screen. 'A Hard Day's Night' follows the Fab Four, who play exaggeratedly exuberant versions of themselves, on a trip from Liverpool to London to make a TV appearance. Along the way they must deal with an uptight manager, hordes of fans and McCartney's strange grandfather.

For this 50th anniversary edition of 'A Hard Day's Night,' Janus Films has digitally restored the entire film and hired Giles Martin, the son of the Beatles' producer, to remix and remaster the iconic soundtrack at the legendary Abbey Road Studios.

Tickets for this one-night-only event are available at the front desk of Spokane Public Radio, 2319 N. Monroe Street in Spokane, or by calling 509-328-5729. For more information and a trailer, visit
