From its iconic album cover, a veritable smorgasbord of pop culture icons, to its jangling guitars, psychedelic leanings and swirling Lennon/McCartney and even Ringo Starr vocals, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band is considered a masterpiece of the Beatles canon. Hear it recreated note for note in its entirety with a classical twist when the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra, its Artistic Director/lead conductor Neal Gittleman and the Classical Mystery Tour rock ensemble join forces for an historic performance this Spring!

In 1996 the Fab Four came to a crossroads that would shape the future of their artistic direction, as well as the history of music itself. Tired and bored with life on the road John, Paul, George and Ringo decided to quit touring for good, opening themselves up to new concepts when it came to their primary output - recording in the studio. Released in 1967, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club band was the result and in it they distanced themselves from the loveable mop top image of their youth and embraced a new moniker.
