The Beatles: 50 Years Later at the Millburn Library

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!

Barry is an internationally respected and award-winning musician, a published author, and is on the music faculty of SUNY and Ramapo College. He has accompanied Grammy- and RMI-winning artists, toured on three continents, and performed on numerous recordings, radio and TV. The Beatles had a profound influence on Barry’s musical life, and you can learn more or contact Barry at https://www.barrybassist.com.

This program is free and open to all. It is sponsored by the Friends of the Millburn Library. The Millburn Free Public Library is located at 200 Glen Ave., Millburn, NJ 07041 and can be reached at 973-376-1006.​
