The Beatles: Band of the Sixties
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 will be supplemented with audio clips of music and excerpts from interviews with the band members.
2012 University of Hartford graduate Aaron Krerowicz is the United States of America’s only full-time professional Beatles scholar. He sang with the St. John’s choir from Easter 2011 through June 2015. In the not quite 5 months since his departure from St. John’s, he has presented his Beatles research 51 times in 12 different states, including twice in London and thrice in Liverpool. Aaron’s first Beatles book,”The Beatles & The Avant-Garde”, was published last year; his second, “The Beatles: Band of the Sixties” (based on this presentation), was released as an Amazon Kindle ebook in April; and his third, “From the Shadow of JFK: The Rise of Beatlemania in America”, was published in June. All three books will be available for purchase at the conclusion of the program.
