ENVIRONMENT Here’s a chance to see what The Beatles would be like if they had had the chance to perform with a modern symphony orchestra.
The Midland-Odessa Symphony scheduled Classical Mystery Tour: A Tribute to the Beatles at 7:30 p.m. on October 9 at the Wagner Noël Performing Arts Center.
“One of the goals of the symphony is to improve the quality of life through performance and music education,” said MOSC Executive Director Ethan Wills. “By meeting the concert, we meet the performance part. But when you talk about music education, people may or may not agree with what they think of the Beatles, but you can’t deny the impact they had on rock if it wasn’t. is about music in general. It’s that perfect concert where the youngest can go out. The Beatles are timeless. I just know any age will appreciate it. This is what makes me really excited. Putting great songs with great musicians feels good. “
The concert will feature dozens of Beatles songs performed exactly as they were recorded.
The four musicians on Classical Mystery Tour will look and sound exactly like the Beatles, but the performance is more than just a rock concert, press material details.
The show will feature over 24 performed Beatles tunes, including “Penny Lane” with a live trumpet section as well as “Yesterday” with an acoustic guitar and string quartet. The performance will also include a classic / rock mix on “I am the Walrus”.
“One of the things we’re so excited to have is this symphony, many of whose members are professionals who live in this area,” said Wills. “To bring this group together, they’re going to be making music from the Beatles discography from the beginning to the end of their careers together. This kind of music is very eclectic.
