In January 2013, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum's Education Department hosted the first of its quarterly Teachers Rock education courses, welcoming more than 90 teaching professionals -- orchestra directors and teachers from around the country -- who attended "Teachers Rock: Rock the Classical." The programming highlighted the connections between rock and roll and other genres, with performances and creative arrangements of familiar popular music songs. In this clip, Miami University of Ohio's Dr. Ricardo Averbach and Miami University's Oxford Chamber Orchestra performs the Beatles' "Penny Lane," in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum's Foster Theater.
