Classic Albums Live: The Beatles - Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band

Remember when you used to listen to an entire album from start to finish? When flipping the vinyl was a cherished ritual of music appreciation? Arts Commons Presents and Classic Albums Live do. 

A masterpiece that pushed recording technology to the limit, The Beatles’ eighth studio album was also a ground-breaking concept. As their enigmatic alter ego, the fictional Sgt. Pepper band gave these Britpop icons the freedom to experiment musically, and we’re still reaping the benefits – the result landed the number one position in Rolling Stone’s list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. Lean into Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds after the band gets by With a Little Help from my Friends with the four-time GRAMMY-winning album that helped The Beatles redefine rock music as an art form.  

Classic Albums Live is a listening party that evokes your love for your favourite albums – live and in-person. Founded by Craig Martin in 2003, Classic Albums Live recreates each album note for note, cut for cut, with some of Canada’s best musicians. After three seasons of bringing Classic Albums Live to Calgary music lovers, Arts Commons Presents once again brings you back in time to hear your favourite songs just like new. 

The album inspired an unprecedented outpouring of reviews, cover stories, and sober cultural commentaries in newspapers, mass-circulation magazines, and highbrow literary journals, many of which had never covered rock as an artistic phenomenon before. - The New Yorker 

Still, today, it just sounds so fresh. It sounds full of ideas. These guys knew what they were doing. - Rolling Stone

Named after Mr. Jack Singer ($1.5M contribution from his sons, Alan and Stephen Singer), the concert hall is also the home of the Carthy Organ donated by the Carthy Foundation in the amount of $750,000 in memory of Mrs. Margaret Mannix. Suspended high above the stage is a laminated, 185,000-pound (90-ton) spruce-wood acoustical canopy that can be raised or lowered to tune the hall according to the specific needs of each performer.

Over its 32 year life, Jack Singer Concert Hall has undergone many upgrades to ensure that it remains a state-of-the-art performance hall, including a new million dollar sound system with state-of-the-art hearing assistance in 2004, a complete replacement of all its analog sound boards in 2014, and the full replacement of all of its seats, in 2017.
