What would it be like to hear The Beatles play live in concert with a symphony orchestra? Find out. The NMPhil joins original members of the Broadway sensation Beatlemania with 2 hours of nonstop Beatles hits – all performed exactly as they were originally recorded! The Los Angeles Times said, “…more than just an incredible simulation.” If you like The Beatles, you will LOVE Classical Mystery Tour!
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 30 Beatles tunes sung, played, and performed exactly as they were written. 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.
Classical Mystery Tour features Jim Owen (John Lennon) on rhythm guitar, piano, and vocals; Joey Curatolo (Paul McCartney) on bass guitar, piano, and vocals; Tom Teeley (George Harrison) on lead guitar and vocals; and Doug Cox (Ringo Starr) on drums and vocals. David Felberg conducts the concert.
