In early 1967, the Beatles released a groundbreaking single -- John Lennon's "Strawberry Fields Forever" backed by Paul McCartney's "Penny Lane." In its music, lyrics, arrangement, and subject matter, "Strawberry Fields Forever"/"Penny Lane" changed the face of popular music forever.
Join composer/producer Scott Freiman as he takes Beatles fans young and old on A Trip Through Strawberry Fields at the SUNY Ulster College Lounge. In this 90 minute multimedia presentation, Mr.
Freiman transports his audience into Abbey Road studio for a look at the revolutionary
techniques used during the production of three Beatles’ masterpieces -- “Strawberry Fields Forever,” “Penny Lane,” and “A Day In The Life.” Using rare audio and video clips, as well as anecdotes about the creation of the
songs, Mr. Freiman allows the audience to see and hear the evolution of these groundbreaking
songs and discusses the songs’ lasting influence on popular music.
Musicians and non-musicians, Beatles fanatics and casual listeners will all enjoy Mr. Freiman’s presentation. You will never listen to the Beatles or any other music the same way again!
Scott Freiman combines his love of the Beatles with experience as a composer, producer and engineer to deliver unique lectures about the Beatles. He moves past the personalities of the four Beatles to uncover the reasons why their music continues to be loved by millions. Drawing on numerous first-hand sources, Scott walks his audiences through detailed analyses of the songwriting and production techniques used by the Beatles in recording their landmark albums and singles.
