Astronomy Speaker: Dr. TBD
White Album Ensemble Chamber Orchestra
The original White Album Ensemble was a 5-10 piece ensemble that covered 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, a few members of the original White Album Ensemble have created the White Album Ensemble 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
Visit White Album Ensemble for more information about the original group.
