Attention Cloud Library Users

The Beatles: 50 Years Later
Presented by Barry Wiesenfeld
Were The Beatles just four “Mop Tops” – or a great deal more? What made them such a strong force that their music is still popular and vibrant now, more than 50 years later? In this presentation, we’ll explore the phenomenon that was The Beatles – their originality, evolution, ultimate sophistication, innovations, lyric depth, and much more.
Barry Wiesenfeld is an internationally respected and award-winning freelance musician, a published author, and is on the music faculty of SUNY and Ramapo College.
