Beatles scholar Scott Freiman returns LIVE and in person for a second multimedia lecture, film and music experience, this time peeling back the layers of the Fab Four's bestselling album.
Scott escorts fans young and old into the studio with the Beatles as they create The Beatles (commonly referred to as the White Album). Released in 1968, the White Album’s thirty songs span almost every style of music -- from hard rock to country to chamber music to avant garde. Its recording took place during a remarkable year in Beatles history that included a lengthy trip to India and the arrival of Yoko Ono. In Looking Through A Glass Onion: Deconstructing The Beatles’ White Album, Scott traces the creation of some of the Beatles’ most memorable songs, such as “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” and “Revolution”, from demo to final version. Scott also covers the recording of “Hey Jude”, the Beatles’ most successful single. Scott discusses the studio techniques used by the Beatles during 1968 and then shares many examples of rare audio and video of the Beatles in action. This unbelievable multimedia experience features lecture, archival film, and rare studio takes for two shows only! 7pm show is sold out! Tickets still available for the 4pm presentation!
Tickets are $20 general admission, $15 for members. Advance tickets highly recommended!
