Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band — Art of Time Ensemble

Description: Steven Page (founder and former lead of the iconic band Barenaked Ladies) and Wesley Stace (AKA John Wesley Harding) join singers Andy Maize (Skydiggers) and Craig Northey (The Odds) in a reimagining of the Beatles' groundbreaking album, "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band." The singers and Art of Time's world class orchestra collaborate for an incredible night of music. One part tone poem, one part rock opera, Sgt. Pepper is a cornerstone of rock & roll history. Songs including "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds," "When I'm Sixty-Four," and "With a Little Help From My Friends" are reimagined in arrangements that affectionately celebrate the music while preserving the vocal harmonies and musical elements that earned 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 15 years, 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. The McCain box office is open weekdays 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and 90 minutes before each performance. 785.532.6428 Submitted by: Todd Holmberg McCain Performance Series
