The Millburn Free Public Library is pleased to present "The Beatles: 50 Years Later," presented by Barry Wiesenfeld, on Wednesday, October 2, 2019 at 7:00pm.
A respected musicologist once referred to The Beatles as “one of the most transforming entities of 20th century music” and claimed that they changed the course of popular music forever. Can that possibly be true? Were The Beatles really so much more than just four “Mop Tops”? And 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 and growth, ultimate sophistication, innovations, lyric depth, and much more. Join us for the discussion!
