The Beatles: Band of the Sixties


On Thursday, February 21, from 7:00 - 8:30 p.m., the Farmington Libraries will host a lecture led by Aaron Krerowicz entitled, “The Beatles: Band of the Sixties.” This event will take place at the main library at 6 Monteith Drive. 

Explore the music of The Beatles in this 90-minute presentation spanning the full 1960's: beginning with the band's seminal visits to Hamburg, through the Beatlemania years, and concluding with Abbey Road. The lecture will be supplemented with audio clips of music and interviews from the band members. This discussion is being held as a preview of Farmington Continuing Education's course on the same subject (www.fpsct.org).

An avid teacher and Beatles scholar, Aaron Krerowicz graduated from Butler University with a Bachelor’s of Music in Theory & Composition in 2008; from Boston University in 2010 with a Master’s of Music in Composition; and from the Hartt School of the University of Hartford with a Graduate Artist Diploma in the same discipline in 2012. He currently teaches musical keyboarding and leads the school band at Grace Academy in downtown Hartford. He also runs a private instrumental lesson studio at Capital Preparatory Magnet School, in addition to maintaining a home studio. These lessons are open to the public.
