Come Together – A Tribute to the Beatles
“Come Together – A Tribute to the Beatles,” incorporated the sights and sounds of the 1960s during SGMC’s three performances of the original multi-media work at the Crest Theatre in Sacramento. In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Beatle’s historic appearance on “The Ed Sullivan Show,” “Come Together” featured the chorus’ interpretation of Beatles favorites against an original compilation of vintage still photos and video footage of Beatle-mania and U.S. popular culture of the last five decades, as well as historical images of Sacramento’s LGBT community.
Photos and video were displayed on a stage backdrop of multiple screens suspended behind the chorus. Featured Beatles songs included “We Can Work It Out,” “This Boy,” “Hard Day’s Night,” “Yellow Submarine,” “When I’m 64,” “You’ve Got to Hide Your Love Away,” “Nowhere Man,” “Hard Day’s Night,” “Hey Jude,” “Imagine,” and many more.
