The Arkansas Symphony Orchestra, Philip Mann, Music Director and Conductor, presents the third concert of the 2018-2019 Acxiom Pops Live! season: Classical Mystery Tour: Sgt. Pepper’s, Saturday, March 9 at 7:30 p.m., Sunday, March 10 at 3:00 p.m. at the Robinson Center.

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 show presents more than two dozen Beatles tunes performed exactly as they were originally recorded. Concertgoers will hear “Penny Lane” with a live trumpet section, experience the beauty of “Yesterday” with an acoustic guitar and string quartet, and enjoy the classical/rock blend on “I Am the Walrus.”

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the groundbreaking album “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” Classical Mystery Tour has added a special “Sgt. Pepper’s” section to their concert, featuring the title track plus such iconic songs as “With a Little Help From My Friends,” Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds,” “She’s Leaving Home,” “Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite,” “When I’m 64,” and “A Day in the Life.”
