Classical Mystery Tour, a Beatles tribute act that will be backed by the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, is celebrating the 50th anniversary of two genre-changing albums: "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" and "The White Album." Jeff Tyzik will lead the orchestra. Each of the four main musicians looks and sounds exactly like The Beatles, down to every little detail, including small mannerisms, vocal inflections, period-correct costumes, and original instruments. The cynosure of the stage is the psychedelic light show that accompanies the music, incorporating footage of The Beatles. One-time moments such as the trumpet solo in "Penny Lane" and the screaming of strings at the end of "A Day in the Life" are performed exactly as they were recorded with the help of the orchestra. This show is a living replica of Beatles music that fans of all ages can enjoy.

Classical Mystery Tour will perform Friday, June 1, and Saturday, June 2, at Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre, 60 Gibbs Street. 8 p.m. $24-$110. rpo.org; classicalmysterytour.com.
