Beatles Tribute Concert Set For Friday

March 9, 2011 - Other News
Tickets are still available for the Wheeling Symphony Orchestra’s “A Tribute to the Beatles”, featuring original members of the Broadway sensation Beatlemania, live in concert Friday at 8 p.m. at the Capitol Theatre.

Guest artist Classical Mystery Tour performs the world's premier tribute to the most successful band of all time—The Beatles.  

“There are a lot of Beatles tribute acts that perform today,” said Bruce Wheeler, Executive Director of the Wheeling Symphony. “I have never seen or heard any of them come anywhere near the realism in sound and visual appeal as Classical Mystery Tour. Their performance is amazing. If you’re a Beatles fan, or you just like Beatles music, you will be thoroughly entertained.”  

Starting with their first show at the Orange County Performing Arts Center in Los Angeles, Classical Mystery Tour has been a hit with both critics and fans.   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 full show presents some 30 Beatles tunes sung, played, and performed exactly as they were written, with the added bonus of the Wheeling 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.  

Classical Mystery Tour features Jim Owen (John Lennon) on rhythm guitar, piano, and vocals; Tony Kishman (Paul McCartney) on bass guitar, piano, and vocals; John Brosnan (George Harrison) on lead guitar and vocals; and Chris Camilleri (Ringo Starr) on drums and vocals. Dr. Roger Hickman conducts the symphony orchestra.  

Tickets can be purchased at the Wheeling Symphony Box Office at 1025 Main St., Suite 811, Wheeling, WV, during regular business hours or by calling 304.232.6191. Tickets also can be purchased at WesBanco Arena or any Ticketmaster outlet.  

This concert is sponsored through the generosity of Dick and Rosalie Dlesk & Family. WTRF-TV7 is the media sponsor. This program is presented with financial assistance from the West Virginia Division of Culture and History and the National Endowment for the Arts, with approval from the West Virginia Commission on the Arts.
