Christopher Donison will be performing “Abbey Road, In Concert” on January 31 and “Sergeant Pepper, in Concert” on Feb. 1 with the accompaniment of the interactive Aurora chandelier, produced by Limbic Media (Facebook/ Limbic Media)

Beatles-inspired piano concert returns to Victoria

Christopher Donison is back by popular demand to perform Abbey Road and Sergeant Pepper

Christopher Donison is pianist and composer who thinks the Beatles deserve the same musical recognition as historical figures like Mozart.

This was the idea that prompted his performance Abbey Road, In Concert in December 2019. The solo piano performance played the full album “as if it were a Beethoven sonata; but better” he said.

Due to audience demand, Donison decided to return for an additional performance on Jan. 31, 2019, and to do an additional show called Sergeant Pepper, In Concert on Feb. 1, 2019.

The shows will be ornamented with the the assistance of a new sonic interactive chandelier called Aurora, put forward by Victoria’s Limbic Media. The chandelier will hang over Donison’s piano, and react to each note.

“When the lights go out, the audience can see what music does to Aurora,” Donison said.

Limbic has had its interactive lights displayed across Victoria, including in the Butchart Gardens, and around the world.

Tickets are $40 for adults, $20 for students, and are available at ticketrocket.co or by phone at 250-888-7772
