Art of Time Ensemble - Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
An ensemble of singers from the pop and rock world - including Andy Maize (Skydiggers) and Craig Northey (The Odds) - lead a reimagining of the Beatles’ ground-breaking album, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. The singers, backed by the world-class Art of Time Ensemble musicians and the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony, collaborate for an incredible night of music – with a couple of surprises to add to a memorable performance.
One part tone poem, one part rock opera, Sgt. Pepper has flavoured nearly half a century of popular music and yet remains as fresh sounding as it did upon initial release. Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, When I’m Sixty-Four, and With a Little Help From My Friends are but a few of Sgt. Pepper’s hits that have become a permanent part of popular culture, earning its designation by Rolling Stone as “the most important rock and roll album ever made”.
Led by internationally renowned concert pianist Andrew Burashko, Toronto’s Art of Time Ensemble has, for over a decade, redefined the classical music experience. Fusing high art and popular culture in programs that juxtapose the best of each genre, Art of Time entertains as it enlightens, revealing the universal qualities that lie at the heart of all great music.
