Back by popular demand, the AIC is hosting another Beatles night! This time, join us for an immersive multimedia journey into the music and musicianship of the Beatles’ monumental White Album. Go behind the scenes in the recording of this wide-ranging album through sound, images, and live musical demonstrations.
The Beatles (White Album), 1968’s generous and back-to-basics approach turned 180º from the opulent psychedelia of Pepper and Magical Mystery Tour. From “Blackbird” to “Revolution 9,” the collection of 30 new tracks showcases the band’s growing musicianship in all directions, just as it demonstrates command over an amazing display of stylistic diversity.
The evening will be hosted by multi-instrumentalist and Beatles musicologists Jack Petruzzelli and Cameron Greider, who have worked with a veritable who’s who of rock and popular music from Patti Smith, Sara Bareilles, and Chris Cornell, to Joan Baez, Joan Osborne, and Rufus Wainwright. Their Beatles’ resumes are equally impressive: Jack is a founding member of the world’s premiere Beatles cover band, the Fab Faux (along with longtime David Letterman bassist Will Lee), and Cameron has toured internationally with John Lennon’s son Sean. The two are also founders, along with Beatles scholar Dr. Walter Everett, of RPM School, which teaches interactive courses in the Beatles’ music.
