“The Beatles have been a big part of the Retro Series since the series began,” said Orchestra Kentucky Music Director Jeff Reed. “I knew I wanted to feature their music in Orchestra Kentucky’s 20th season, and the 50th anniversary of Abbey Road afforded the perfect opportunity.  We are going to perform Abbey Road in its entirety, as close to the original recording as humanly possible, and then have a second half of the Beatles’ greatest hits.”
