The Beatles: Band of the Sixties

Tuesday, October 3, 2017

7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Explore the music of the Beatles in this 60-minute multimedia presentation (part history and part musical analysis) spanning the full 1960's: beginning with the band's seminal visits to Hamburg, continuing through Beatlemania, and concluding with Abbey Road. The program, presented by Beatles scholar Aaron Krerowicz, will be supplemented with audio clips of music and excerpts from interviews with the band members.

About the speaker:
Professional Beatles scholar Aaron Krerowicz won a research grant through the University of Hartford in 2011 to study the band and since has presented his findings through more than 300 presentations throughout the US and England. He has authored four Beatles books, and created a series of original Beatles drawings. Aaron also produces a series of 60-second videos called The Beatles Minute, which can be found on his website and YouTube.

This program is made possible due to support and funding from the Friends of the Jones Libraries and the Woodbury Fund.
