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
“Quite simply the leading Irish violinist of her generation … Ms. Leonard managed to retain that natural directness of statement and sentiment which is her particular musical gift.” —Irish Times
The impetus for Camerata Pacifica’s November concert program is the Opus 11 Piano trio in D Major of Fanny Mendelssohn. Performed by violinist Catherine Leonard, cellist Cecilia Tsan and pianist Vicki Ray, this almost-unknown work will finally get the performance it deserves. Another unknown work, the 2nd Violin Sonata of the Scot, Sir John Blackwood McEwan, will open the program. A turn-of-the-century British treasure unearthed by Artistic Director Adrian Spence, the McEwan is romantic to its core.
George Crumb’s Night Music II opens the 2nd half of the concert. These brief but ethereal Nocturnes will leave a ghostly impression on the acoustic palate and should be savored before they’re swept away by the Opus 66, Piano Trio in C Minor of Felix Mendelssohn. As wonderful as his sister’s work is, it’s obvious why Felix became the world famous composer.
