TULSA, OKLA – Tulsa Chorale will begin its 2020-2021 season in a unique way, with a socially-distanced performance at Tulsa’s Admiral Twin Drive-In. On October 13, Tulsa Chorale will present “Revolutionaries: Beethoven & The Beatles,” featuring Beethoven’s Mass in C and famous songs by The Beatles.
The concert will begin at 7:30 pm with a virtual performance of “Kyrie” and “Gloria” from Beethoven’s Mass in C, performed by Tulsa Chorale, soloists and orchestra. Next, the audience will enjoy the film “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” an American musical comedy directed by Michael Schultz, written by Henry Edwards and starring an ensemble cast led by The Bee Gees. The night will conclude with a live performance by Tulsa’s own Retro Rockets playing covers of fan-favorite songs by The Beatles.
“We are thrilled to bring two great revolutionaries together on the big Admiral Twin screen, as well as celebrate the 250th birthday of Ludvig van Beethoven and the 60th birthday of the Beatles,” says Dr. Tim Sharp, Artistic Director for Tulsa Chorale. “2020 has been a tough year, but we will put all of that to the side as we celebrate these musical milestones.”
The cost for admission is $20 per car. Tickets will be available at the gate or may be purchased in advance via Eventbrite. Gates will open at 6:45 pm.
