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 show presents more than two dozen Beatles tunes performed exactly as they were originally recorded. Hear "Penny Lane" with a live trumpet section, experience the beauty of "Yesterday" with an acoustic guitar and string quartet, and enjoy the classical/rock blend on "I Am the Walrus." Selling out venues nationwide, Bay Atlantic Symphony is thrilled to bring this audience favorite to Atlantic City.
Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the groundbreaking album "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band," Classical Mystery Tour has added a special "Sgt. Pepper's" section to their concert, featuring the title track plus such iconic songs as "With a Little Help From My Friends," "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds," "She's Leaving Home," "Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite," "When I'm 64," and "A Day in the Life."
“From early Beatles music on through the solo years, Classical Mystery Tour is the best of The Beatles like you've never heard them before, backed by the power and artistry of Bay Atlantic Symphony’s 50 plus member orchestra,” commented Jed Gaylin, Bay Atlantic Symphony’s Music Director. “You might say it’s the best show the Beatles never did!”
Now in its tenth year, the Symphony’s Gala concert event serves as a critical annual fundraiser in support of Bay Atlantic’s dynamic music education programs and community outreach initiatives.
“Public school budget cuts for arts education are unfortunately too common,” stated Mark Soifer, Esq., President, Board of Trustees for the Bay Atlantic Symphony. “From music mentorship programs in elementary and high schools, to symphonic music education programs dedicated to students throughout South Jersey, Bay Atlantic Symphony’s outreach programs represent the only instruction many area students receive in music education.”
In addition to purchasing tickets, a number of Gala Concert Sponsorship opportunities are available.
