It’s The Beatles! Four musicians with the same sweet sound and groovy look as Liverpool’s Fab Four share the stage with the GPO for a high-energy concert of classics from the Beatles’ songbook. Hear Penny Lane with a live trumpet section, experience the beauty of "Yesterday" with an acoustic guitar and string quartet, enjoy the classical/rock blend on "I Am the Walrus," and relish the cascading crescendos on “A Day in the Life.”
From early Beatles music on through the solo years, Classical Mystery Tour is the best of The Beatles like you've never heard them before – accompanied by a full symphony orchestra
Join us at 6:40 pm in Hensel Phelps Theatre for a Pre-Concert talk as Dr. Kenneth Womack, award-winning Beatles’ biographer and author of multiple volumes of Beatles Encyclopedias joins us from Monmouth University to share everything there is to know about the Fab Four.

Dust off your witch or wizard hat and prepare for a magical night of music! The 2018 Family Concert promises an evening of memorable and exciting music leaving you wishing for more! The concert begins with one of Mozart’s most recognizable overtures: The Magic Flute Overture. Selections from Wagner’s The Valkyrie and Holst’s The Planets will warm you up before the ever-exciting In the Hall of the Mountain King.
The evening concludes with a piece you’ll be humming all the way home – John Williams’s Harry Potter Suite from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.

As we bid farewell to our 107th season, we want our audience to leave with their hearts full. We begin the evening with Beethoven’s tumultuous Consecration of the House with the UNC Combined Chorus. Taking a step back, the GPO, working closely with the Honor Flight of Northern Colorado, will take time to recognize the veterans who bravely served their country during a time of crisis, immediately followed by the poignantly powerful Adagio for Strings by Samuel Barber. The evening concludes with one of the most powerful masses of all time, Gabriel Faure’s Requiem in D minor. Heralded as Faure’s greatest composition, this mass, with support of the UNC Combined Chorus, is dominated from beginning to end by a very human feeling of faith in eternal rest. Join us for a pre-concert “Peace Panel” at 6:40 pm in the Hensel Phelps Theatre.
