DAYTON PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA PRESENTS "CLASSICAL MYSTERY TOUR" A TRIBUTE TO THE BEATLES NOVEMBER 20 AT THE SCHUSTER CENTER

"Rockin' Orchestra" series kicks off with music from the legendary "Fab Four"

 

DAYTON, OH (November 5, 2010) – The Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra will kick off its new “Rockin’ Orchestra” series with a concert featuring Classical Mystery Tour: A Tribute to the Beatles, on Saturday, November 20, 2010 at 8 p.m. in the Schuster Center.  Neal Gittleman, Music Director of the DPO, will conduct.

From the recent success of The Beatles: Rock Band to the release of the re-mastered Beatles albums, the popularity of the legendary “Fab Four” remains as great as ever.  Many Beatles fans never had the opportunity to experience a live Beatles show. Now, Classical Mystery Tour offers that live experience in the comfort of a concert hall, for fans both old and new.

Classical Mystery Tour made their Dayton debut in 2006 and created such an impact, they were the obvious choice to kick off the “Rockin’ Orchestra” Series. Their November 20 concert will feature a Beatles songbook that spans from “A Hard Day’s Night” to “The Long and Winding Road” to Paul and John’s solo classics like “Live and Let Die” and “Imagine.”

About Classical Mystery Tour
Imagine The Beatles playing in concert with a symphony orchestra.  What would that have sounded like?  Find out for yourself when Classical Mystery Tour performs live in concert.

The four musicians in Classical Mystery Tour look and sound just like The Beatles, but Classical Mystery Tour is more than just a rock concert.  The full show presents some two dozen Beatles tunes sung, played, and performed exactly as they were written.  Hear "Penny Lane" with a live baroque trumpet; experience the beauty of "Yesterday" with an acoustic guitar and string quartet; enjoy the rock/classical blend on the hard edged "I Am the Walrus."  From early Beatles music on through the solo years, Classical Mystery Tour is the best of The Beatles like you've never heard them: totally live.
