The candid side of Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr at the ISO

Grammy-winner Jeff Tyzik’s new arrangements, transcribed and arranged from the original master recordings at Abbey Road, interface with candid photos of the band, taken from the archives of the official fan magazine, “The Beatles Book Monthly,” for “a magical musical and visual journey.”

“Twenty-five of The Beatles’ best-known songs (“Here Comes the Sun,” “Hey Jude,” “All You Need Is Love,” etc.) in orchestra-augmented arrangements while avoiding the tribute-band route,” cites the online note from Schirmer Theatrical, LLC, and Greenberg Artists. “The Beatles were ostensibly four guys singing about girls, and what we wanted to do in this project was to authentically and creatively embody the music.”

"The production comes with all orchestral arrangements, six musicians, and two technical crew members (video and sound),” informs the note.

Revolution is a stunning multimedia experience featuring new symphonic arrangements transcribed from the original master recordings at Abbey Road. Accompanied by hundreds of rare and unseen photos along with stunning video and animation,

ISO’s stage crew and lighting and sound team also earn special applause for synchronizing everything on stage.

A special note informs: "All music under license from Sony/ATV Music Publishing LLC and Harrisongs LTD. All photos under license from The Beatles Book Photo Library. The show is not endorsed by or connected to Apple Corps or The Beatles.

"A portion of the proceeds from productions of “Revolution: The Music of The Beatles, A Symphonic Experience” are donated to the Penny Lane Development Trust (PLDT), a charitable community center located in Liverpool, UK, that provides an engaging environment where people can expand and explore their interests."

The Beatles were part of a larger consciousness in the 1960s. Indiana was part of the scene when “the Fab Four” came to Indianapolis on September 3, 1964, to perform at the Indiana State Fair Coliseum. ‘Every seat filled’ cites reports of the 5:00 p.m. show. But by 9:00 p.m., the crowd was so large that they performed on a much larger temporary stage erected on the dirt track in front of the grandstand.
