Philadelphia, PA (January 4, 2017) — In honor of the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ groundbreaking record “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” – which Rolling Stone calls the most important rock & roll album ever made – the Philly POPS will perform the album that transformed rock forever on February 3, 4, and 5 at the Kimmel Center.

The show features the Classical Mystery Tour, a group of four musicians who perform the music of The Beatles exclusively with symphony orchestras. The performers resemble John, Paul, George, and Ringo in look and sound – and dress the part in Sgt. Pepper and Abbey Road costumes.

“The Classical Mystery Tour specializes in performing songs of The Beatles that used orchestral arrangement… songs that they recorded in the studio but couldn’t play live,” said Michael Krajewski, Philly POPS Music Director. “That’s where the Philly POPS comes in. We have a full orchestra complete with those extra instruments. Beatles aficionados will be blown away hearing us perform these songs.”

The show will feature songs from “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” and more Fab Four hits, including:

“With a Little Help From My Friends”

“Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds”

“When I’m Sixty-Four”

“A Day In the Life”

“Eleanor Rigby”

“Love is All You Need”

“Come Together”

“Here Comes the Sun”

“I Am the Walrus”

“Imagine”

“Yellow Submarine”
