Art of Time Ensemble performs Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

Andrew Burashko, artistic director
Featuring Steven Page, Craig Northey, Andy Maize, and Wesley Stace

The 1967 release of The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band set the soundtrack for the "summer of love" with an alter-ego ensemble employing innovative musical production, uncommon instrumentation, and a fantastic orchestral lineup for a progressive and ultimately timeless album featuring such favorites as Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, When I'm Sixty-Four, With a Little Help from My Friends, and A Day in the Life.

For over 15 years, Toronto's Art of Time Ensemble, a chamber music collective comprised of the best artists on the Canadian scene and led by concert pianist Andrew Burashko, has transformed the way audiences experience music. Fusing "high art" and popular culture in concerts that juxtapose the best of each, Art of Time entertains as it enlightens, revealing the universal qualities that lie at the heart of all great music. Art of Time's take on the Fab Four features thoughtfully reimagined arrangements and tight vocal harmonies presented by an indie dream quartet—Barenaked Ladies founder Steven Page, Skydiggers' Andy Maize, The Odds' Craig Northey, and Wesley Stace (AKA John Wesley Harding)—resulting in a powerful celebration of what Rolling Stone dubbed "the most important rock and roll album ever made."
