CELEBRATING THE 50th ANNIVERSARY OF ABBEY ROAD!
Come Together for the first concert of Allentown Symphony Orchestra’s 2019-20 POPS Series and hear Something that will amaze your ears and astound your eyes! Classical Mystery Tour performs dozens of Beatles songs exactly as they were originally recorded – live on stage at Miller Symphony Hall with the ASO. This tribute to 50 Years of Abbey Road is here for one performance only!
What would The Beatles have sounded like if they had the chance to perform live in concert with the ASO? 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. Hear Penny Lane with a live trumpet section; 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.
Plus, this special performance celebrates the 50th anniversary of the legendary Abbey Road album which was released in 1969. The recording sessions for the album were the last in which all four Beatles participated. It has been hailed as one of the greatest albums of all time, and the cover photo of all four band members walking in a cross walk outside Abbey Road Studios has become one of the most famous images in history.
