FOLLOWING a rapturously received debut at the Kenton Theatre last summer, the All Things Must Pass
FOLLOWING a rapturously received debut at the Kenton Theatre last summer, the All Things Must Pass Orchestra is returning to Henley — this time for two nights.
Based in Brighton, the 10-piece orchestra is the only touring band in the UK dedicated to playing the music of former Beatle and Henley resident George Harrison in a live setting.
Austrian-born bandleader Alex Eberhard was inspired to assemble the orchestra by the November 2002 “Concert for George” at the Royal Albert Hall.
He studied classical percussion, jazz drums and guitar at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Graz, where he gained a master’s degree. In 2002 he relocated to the UK, where he quickly became established as a drummer on the Brighton jazz scene.
There he met many of the musicians now involved in the All Things Must Pass Orchestra.
Alex said: “The Kenton performances will encompass time-honoured Beatles classics alongside well-chosen songs spanning George’s prolific solo career. This will be an evening to raise your spirits and touch your heart. There might even be some surprise guests.”
The concerts take place at 8pm tonight (Friday) and tomorrow (Saturday). Tickets are £22, with concessions available. To book, call (01491) 575698 or visit www.kentontheatre.co.uk
