Special Beatles lecture/live performance to benefit musicians and artists affected by Hurricane Sandy
This unique multi-media presentation with live musicians will explore the trailblazing use of the symphony orchestra and the recording studio in the music of the Beatles. This not-to-be-missed event for all ages promises to be lively, entertaining and full of musical examples and video clips of the Beatles’ songs!
Magical Orchestra Inc. will be joining with the Cinema Arts Centre to raise funds for musician and artist victims of Hurricane Sandy by presenting the entertaining and informative young people’s concert, The Beatles’ Magical Use of the Orchestra. Witness first-hand how the instruments of the symphony orchestra combine to create the unique and magnificent tapestries behind the Beatles’ groundbreaking records, while lending a helping hand to our friends and neighbors dealing with the aftereffects of one of the most devastating storms to ever hit the East Coast of the U.S.A.
The 20-song multimedia presentation includes “Strawberry Fields Forever,” “Eleanor Rigby,” ”Penny Lane,” “I Am the Walrus,” “She’s Leaving Home,” “Within You Without You” and “A Day in the Life.” This special benefit performance is sure to be an excellent way to bring in the holidays: fun for you and your family and much needed support for others in their time of need.
