The Taylor University Jazz Ensemble will present A Tribute to the Beatles, an evening of Beatles music arranged for big band, on Tuesday, November 14, at 7:30 pm. in the Rediger Chapel/Auditorium.

The Beatles burst upon the American music scene and wider culture on Sunday, February 9, 1964, when the band made a televised appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show, a program that was watched by an estimated that 73 million viewers and launched the phenomenon of “Beatlemania.”
This concert is sure to bring back memories for older audience members while providing new insights for younger guests who enjoy Beatles music. A large audience is expected, so come early to get a good seat!
