***************************************

Acclaimed Beatles tribute band Classical Mystery Tour joins the Philly POPS for a Sgt. Pepper Celebration in honor of the 50th anniversary of the groundbreaking Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album. Along with classics from the album – including Lucy In the Sky With Diamonds, With a Little Help From My Friends and When I'm 64 — expect other timeless “Fab Four” hits such as Yesterday and Hey Jude.
“The Beatles never performed many of their songs live in the way that they recorded them because they had extra sound effects and instruments in the studio, but with a full orchestra, we can recreate these timeless songs in the concert hall,” Krajewski said. “Beatles aficionados are blown away hearing an orchestra like ours perform this music.”

**************************************

David Charles Abell is back in his hometown of Philadelphia with Broadway stars Hugh Panaro, Alli Mauzey and Rachel York! The internationally celebrated conductor who has wowed POPS audiences during Christmas Spectacular for the past three seasons brings the best of modern Broadway shows to the POPS stage. On deck: showstoppers from Andrew Lloyd Webber's Phantom of the Opera (with Panaro, the Philadelphia-native who starred in the title role on Broadway), Les Misérables, Stephen Sondheim's Into the Woods, and Wicked (with Mauzey who played Glinda on Broadway).

“The First Lady of Song” would have been 100 years old in 2017. The POPS will celebrate Ella Fitzgerald’s musical legacy with her frequent collaborator Louis Armstrong in a swinging lineup of their biggest solo and combined hits. Master jazz trumpeter Byron Stripling and R&B sensation Marva Hicks join the POPS to cover chart-toppers like It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing), Sweet Georgia Brown, A Tisket A Tasket, What a Wonderful World, and many more.
“Ella and Louis’ songs were magical – they performed them so skillfully and with such expression that the music is still relevant today,” Krajewski said. “Ever since I’ve known Byron, I’ve wanted to bring him to Philadelphia. He’s a great musician with a wonderful personality, a great sense of humor and is an all-around entertainer.
