La Jolla Music Society welcomes the return of Mark Morris Dance Group with "Pepperland," a tribute to the 50th anniversary of the Beatles' "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band."

This piece, co-commissioned by La Jolla Music Society, features an original score by Ethan Iverson, interspersing arrangements of "Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band," "With a Little Help From My Friends," "A Day in the Life," "When I’m Sixty-Four," "Within You Without You," and "Penny Lane."

These six Pepper-inspired original pieces are intended especially for Mark Morris’ profound understanding of classical forms: Allegro, Scherzo, Adagio and the blues.

A live chamber music ensemble of voice, theremin, soprano saxophone, trombone, two keyboards, and percussion will explore and elaborate on Sgt. Pepper’s non-rock and roll influences.

Marcus Overton will host a pre-performance lecture at 7 p.m. For additional details call the box office at (858) 459-3728.

Dates and times of events are subject to change without notice. Always check the event organizer's website for the most updated schedule before attending.
