Two great musical traditions in one great concert - Beethoven’s glorious 5th Symphony and the world’s number one Beatles tribute band, The Fab Four (with full orchestra), playing megahits of the most influential rock group in history.

Beethoven and The Beatles? It’s a match made in heaven!

Not many people know it, but the bad boy of Romantic music was also a prolific songwriter. Most of Beethoven’s “Greatest Hits” are purely instrumental (like the 5th Symphony, which you’ll hear at this concert), but he did write one tune that beat ‘em all - the amazing “Ode to Joy” from his 9th Symphony (don’t worry, you’ll hear that one at a future Cal Phil concert!). Believe it or not, over the course of his musical career, Beethoven composed over 150 songs. Of course, The Beatles outdid him in sheer number of hits, with 250 songs (selling 1.6 billion singles in the United States alone). And some of The Beatles very best will be spotlighted in this dazzling concert: “Yesterday,” “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” “All You Need Is Love,” “Eleanor Rigby” (originally “Miss Daisy Hawkins”), "Got to Get You into My Life" (a salute to the Motown Sound and the first time the Beatles used a horn section), “Imagine,” “Hey Jude” (originally "Hey Jules," written to comfort Julian Lennon during his parents breakup), and more!
