From the electrifying performances on The Ed Sullivan Show to the psychedelic pop experimentations of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band -- all of the excitement and unforgettable music of a live Beatles show is brought to life in Rain: A Tribute to the Beatles. With authentic costumes, multimedia effects and note-perfect live renditions of classic Beatles songs such as "Can't Buy Me Love," "I Want to Hold Your Hand," "Hey Jude" and "Let It Be," Rain is the biggest sensation since John, Paul, George and Ringo themselves first set foot on American soil. These spectacular musicians have won international acclaim for their uncanny reproduction of the Fab Four. Founded in Southern California in the mid-1970s, Rain has toured across the globe with a repertoire of more than 200 Beatles songs, including the most complex and challenging tunes that the Beatles themselves recorded in the studio but never performed for a live audience.

Quotes & Highlights
“In this way the starry heavens, seen from all over our planet, inspired us in making and presenting a multi-cultural, international music work.” —Philip Glass
Since its world premiere performance at the Acropolis in Athens, Greece, Orion, a new work by Philip Glass (commissioned by the 2004 Athens Cultural Olympiad) will make its West Coast premiere as the centerpiece of the 2005 Eclectic Orange Festival. In collaboration with a group of renowned composers and performers from around the world, the evening-length work is intended to reflect the international character of the Olympiad itself.
Presented by the Philharmonic Society, Orion will be performed at the Orange County Performing Arts Center’s Segerstrom Hall.
