With the 50th anniversary The Beatles’ Abbey Road coming up this September, we’re joining forces with Cascade School of Music to celebrate The Beatles’ legacy with 7 nights of Scott Freiman’s Deconstructing the Beatles — an educational journey into the creative process of The Beatles performances and recording sessions, allowing the audience to see and hear the evolution of their groundbreaking songs and their lasting influence on popular music. Scott’s presentations have entertained audiences of musicians and non-musicians alike, from pre-teens to octogenarians. Once you've seen one of his presentations, you'll never listen to The Beatles — or any other music — the same way again!
Mon. 7/8 @ 3:00p & 8:00p
In October 1965, The Beatles were faced with an impossible task—produce a new album of original music for a Christmas release. Within one month, The Beatles had emerged with what many consider to be one of their greatest albums—Rubber Soul. They even had time to create a double A-side single, “We Can Work It Out” backed by “Day Tripper.” Both sides of the single, as well as the album, hit number one on the charts.
In Deconstructing The Beatles' Rubber Soul, composer/producer Scott Freiman walks Beatles fans through the creation of Rubber Soul. Learn the stores behind the creation of “Norwegian Wood,” “In My Life,” “Nowhere Man,” and other classic Beatles songs.
Mon. 7/15 @ 3:00p & 8:00p
In many music polls, Revolver is rated the top album of all time. The 1966 album launched a period of studio experimentation for The Beatles that coincided with their decision to stop performing live. With memorable songs, such as “Eleanor Rigby,” “Yellow Submarine,” and “Tomorrow Never Knows,” The Beatles pushed popular music to a place it had never been before.
Deconstructing The Beatles’ Revolver explores the groundbreaking production techniques that went into creating this landmark piece of music history. In addition to many of the tracks from Revolver, Mr. Freiman will also explore the creation of two other songs recorded during the same time period, “Paperback Writer” and “Rain.”
SGT. PEPPER'S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND
Mon. 7/29 @ 1:30p & 8:15p
The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band is one of the most influential albums of our time. Rolling Stone described it as “the most important rock & roll album ever made, an unsurpassed adventure in concept, sound, songwriting, cover art and studio technology by the greatest rock & roll group of all time.”
Deconstructing Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band explores the history behind the music. You are guaranteed to leave amazed at The Beatles’ innovation in the studio and have a newfound appreciation for the talents of Lennon, McCartney, Harrison, and Starr.
MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR
Mon. 8/5 @ 1:30p & 8:15p
Deconstructing The Beatles' Magical Mystery Tour explores the music written for the Magical Mystery Tour TV show, as well as the additional songs that appeared on the 1967 LP.
In 1967, The Beatles embarked on an ambitious project, writing and directing a one-hour film, Magical Mystery Tour. The music written for the film is some of The Beatles' psychedelic best. In Deconstructing The Beatles' Magical Mystery Tour, Scott Freiman delves into the creative process behind “The Fool On The Hill,” “Blue Jay Way,” “I Am The Walrus,” and other selections from Magical Mystery Tour. Scott will also “deconstruct” other songs from the Magical Mystery Tour album, including “Strawberry Fields Forever,” “Penny Lane,” and “All You Need Is Love.”
THE WHITE ALBUM
Mon. 8/12 @ 1:30p & 8:15p
In Deconstructing The Beatles’ White Album, Scott Freiman takes Beatles fans into the studio with The Beatles as they create their bestselling album, The Beatles (commonly referred to as the White Album). Released in 1968, the White Album’s thirty songs span almost every style of music — from hard rock to country to chamber music to avant garde. Its recording took place during a remarkable year in Beatles history that included the death of Brian Epstein, the creation of Apple Corps, and a trip to India to study meditation.
Scott transports the audience into the studio for a look at the revolutionary techniques used during the production of “Revolution,” “While My Guitar Gently Weeps,” “Blackbird,” and other songs from the White Album.
Side 1 on Mon. 8/19 @ 1:30p & 8:15p
Side 2 on Mon. 8/26 @ 1:30p, 5:30p & 8:15p
The Beatles’ Abbey Road is a masterpiece filled with classic Beatles songs, such as “Come Together,” “Something,” and “Here Comes the Sun." George Martin told the Beatles to think “symphonically,” and they responded by creating the remarkable side two song suite.
Abbey Road was the last time that the Beatles recorded together at EMI Studios — soon-to-be-christened Abbey Road Studios after the album’s release. Despite the bittersweet atmosphere that surrounded the recording sessions, The Beatles’ outstanding songs and performances together with George Martin’s orchestrations produced an album that continues to be regarded as one of the best albums ever created.
The Birth of the Beatles
Mon. 9/1 @ 3:00p & 8:15p
The Birth of The Beatles explores the path from the young Beatles’ early days as the Quarrymen to their musical transformation in Hamburg. Learn about their first recording sessions with Percy Phillips, Bert Kaempfert, and George Martin. Experience their first performances at the Casbah Club, the Kaiserkeller, and the Cavern. Witness the friendly rivalry between the Beatles and Rory Storm, featuring Ringo Starr. Join manager Brian Epstein as he desperately tries to get the Beatles a recording contract. Suffice to say, it’s an adventure filled with twists, turns, and crazy coincidences.
1963 Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
Mon. 9/9 @ 3:00p
In late 1962, the Beatles stepped into EMI studios for the first time, meeting producer George Martin. Over the next eighteen months, they would release four number-one singles and two number-one albums while becoming international superstars. Learn how the Beatles adapted musical ideas and made them their own. Be amazed at the primitive recording technology they used to create their early hits. Experience the Beatles’ insane schedule as they charmed the press, their fans, and the world at large. It was a year like no other!
