Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D minor (orchestrated by Leopold Stokowski), Franz Liszt’s Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2 and Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana featuring vocalists Nadine Sierra, Christopher Pfund and Brian Mulligan. Tomorrow’s 7 p.m. concert is a tribute to the Beatles and will feature classic tunes like “Penny Lane,” “Yesterday” and “Eleanor Rigby” getting the full orchestral treatment. Conductor Michael Krajewski and the orchestra will be joined by Classical Mystery Tour for this rockin’ event. Tickets to these concerts are $23 to $85. (Gonzalez)
