This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Beatles epic arrival into the music world. On Wednesday, July 23 and Thursday, July 24, at the Kimmel Center's Verizon Hall, the Philadelphia Orchestra is teaming up with the traveling “Classical Mystery Tour” for a symphony show all about Liverpool’s most exciting export.

From their earliest sounds all the way through their solo careers, the Orchestra will perform more than two-dozen songs in the style that they were originally recorded.

Classical Mystery Tour features Jim Owen (John Lennon) on rhythm guitar, piano, and vocals; Tony Kishman (Paul McCartney) on bass guitar, piano, and vocals; David John (George Harrison) on lead guitar and vocals; and Chris Camilleri (Ringo Starr) on drums and vocals. Martin Herman, who transcribed the musical scores note-for-note from Beatles recordings, will conduct with The Philadelphia Orchestra.

Tickets (as low as $20) go on sale Thursday, April 17 at noon. You can purchase them online, over the phone (215-893-1999), or in person at the Kimmel Center box office.
