Executive Director Reed Wallace says of the concert, “What is so incredible about Classical Mystery Tour performing with our Wilmington Symphony is that our audience can hear the original note-for-note orchestra arrangements accompanying these four remarkable sound-a-likes, and all meticulously balanced through a state-of-the-art digital sound mixing console.”
The Beatles tribute band Classical Mystery Tour was formed in 1996 by James Owen, a cast member of the Broadway musical "Beatlemania." 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 as originally recorded. Hear "Penny Lane" with a live trumpet section, experience the beauty of "Yesterday" with an acoustic guitar and string quartet, enjoy the classical/rock blend on "I Am the Walrus," and relish the cascading crescendos on “A Day in the Life.”
“…more than just an incredible simulation…the swelling strings and soaring French horn lines gave Saturday’s live performance a high goose-bump quotient…the crowd stood and bellowed for more.”
~ Los Angeles Times
“This was not merely a show; it was a happening, a love fest, a sing along and a trip down Penny Lane.”
