In Looking Through A Glass Onion: Deconstructing The White Album, composer/producer Scott Freiman takes Beatles fans young and old 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 a lengthy trip to India and the arrival of Yoko Ono.

Join composer/producer Scott Freiman as he presents Looking Through A Glass Onion: Deconstructing The Beatles’ White Album at the Coolidge. In this two-hour multimedia presentation, Mr. Freiman transports his audience into Abbey Road 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. 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.
