Imagine the Beatles playing in concert with a symphony orchestra. 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.
The 2013–2014 season marked the beginning of Jeff Tyzik’s tenure as the Seattle Symphony’s Principal Pops Conductor.
Since its initial performance at the Orange County Performing Arts Center in 1996, Classical Mystery Tour has become one of the top Symphony Pops attractions over the last decade.
