The Enrichment Academy Speaker Series – Gary McKechnie
September 5 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Although it’s been half a century since Beatlemania was born, generation after generation of fans continue to keep the Beatles on the top of nearly every musical poll. But how, in just a few years’ time, did four musically untrained teenagers evolve into the most popular rock n’ roll group of all time? In this presentation on the life and times of the Beatles, guests will recall the magic and mystery behind the Beatles’ fame and lasting influence; from all-night shows in Hamburg bars to lunchtime sessions in a converted Liverpool warehouse to landmark performances on England’s Royal Variety Performance and America’s Ed Sullivan Show and learn how their own lives changed thanks to the Beatles’ influence on music, fashion, film, youth… and the world.
