Astronomy Speaker: TBD
White Album Ensemble Chamber Orchestra
The White Album Ensemble is a 5-10 piece ensemble that covers Beatles music, but Beatles music that was never performed live. The Beatles stopped touring in 1966, and began a recording career that yielded the “classics of our time” from “Rubber Soul,” to “Sgt. Peppers,” to “Abbey Road.” For 2023 they have created a chamber orchestra to perform instrumental versions of Beatles and other bands of the time period’s music, wonderfully suited to Lick Observatory’s unique venue.
“A must-see show for Beatles fans…”
— Santa Cruz Sentinel
“…musically, they were tighter than a hangman’s noose… an excellent performance…”
— Metro Santa Cruz
