Georgia Southern’s Performing Arts Center features Art of Time Ensemble on Nov. 13
The Performing Arts Center (PAC) at Georgia Southern University is proud to welcome the genre-defying Art of Time Ensemble in their first U.S. tour with a performance of songs from the Beatles’ legendary album, “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” on Friday, Nov. 13, at 7:30 pm. The Art of Time Ensemble features lauded performers Steven Page (Barenaked Ladies), Glen Phillips (Toad the Wet Sprocket), Andy Maize (Skydiggers), and Craig Northey (the Odds).
For the ensemble’s “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” tour, the singers from the pop and rock world lead a reimagining of the Beatles’ groundbreaking album. Backed by 17 world-class Art of Time Ensemble musicians, the singers collaborate for an incredible night of music with a couple of surprises to add to an already memorable performance.
One part tone poem, one part rock opera, “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” has flavored nearly half a century of popular music and yet remains as fresh-sounding as it did upon its 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 the hits that have become a permanent part of pop culture, earning the album its designation by Rolling Stone magazine as “the most important rock and roll album ever made.”
To make this event even more special, the PAC invites the audience to a pre-show 1960s-themed costume party and contest. Prizes will be given for best individual costume, best group costume, and best youth costume. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and admission to the party and contest participation is free for ticket holders. Join the PAC in celebrating the culture of the 1960s with music, candy and a “selfie” station to create lasting memories!
