The music of George Harrison is being performed by the dedicated “All Things Must Pass Orchestra” who return to the Kenton Theatre in Henley on 9th June.
This amazing 10-piece orchestra of Brighton musicians is the only touring band of its kind in the UK.
Austrian-born bandleader Alex Eberhard, inspired by the famous Albert Hall concert in George’s memory, assembled the band to do justice to George’s timeless and beautiful songs. Alex says, “The All Things Must Pass Orchestra is unique: paying tribute to the work of George Harrison, without being a tribute band. An ensemble who are able to capture the subtleties, colours and power that infuse so many of his songs.”
Going through Harrison’s catalogue, we add new songs to our repertoire and bring live performance to songs that he himself probably only ever played in the studio. Bringing our new programme to Henley, George Harrison’s adopted hometown, is very special. After very successful concerts at The Kenton Theatre over the past two years, we look forward to responding to popular demand by returning for a third year.”
Their performance will encompass both 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.
The Orchestra will be joined on stage by a very special guest, Sam Brown, who will be playing her precious ukulele originally a gift to her father, Joe Brown, from none other than George Harrison himself. Sam said, “George Harrison was an amazing man and writer, it is such a pleasure to be able to contribute with this great band and play George’s songs.”
