On Friday, October 5, the Murfreesboro Symphony Orchestra will kick off the 2007-08 season with a Beatles tribute concert performed with nine-piece rock band, The Rewinders. The performance will take place at World Outreach Church and begins at 8 p.m. and is sponsored by SunTrust and The Aquatic Critter.

“This is our first concert season in Murfreesboro and we’re excited to start it off with one of our most successful performances,” explains Jeffrey A. Reed, music director of the Murfreesboro Symphony Orchestra. “This show really bridges the gaps between traditional orchestral music and pops.”

“People might not be aware that the Beatles’ music became so complicated in later years that the band could not perform it live. In our concerts, we attempt to sound as close as possible to the original Beatles recordings. That’s why it takes nine band members and an orchestra to perform the music,” says Reed.

Do I even say anything? This is a symphony orchestra’s opening concert.

Maybe this is the answer to dwindling orchestras. Maybe I just don’t get it. Maybe. Maybe not. No. No more words from me.
