Thinkers Series Present “Deconstructing Sgt. Pepper”

If you’re in the Toronto area, you may be interetsed in a new pop culture thing launched by Jazz.FM91.  The “Thinkers Series” is a series of lectures on a variety of topics.

Thursday, January 31 will feature Scott Freiman’s famous “Deconstructing Sgt. Pepper” talk.  It’s set for the TIFF Bell Lightbox on King Street West in Toronto.  From the press release:

Scott Freiman taught a course at Yale about the Beatles. In Toronto, Freiman will tell the story of one of the most important albums of all time, “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” using rare audio and video with anecdotes about the recording sessions.

He’ll draw on numerous first-hand sources and use detailed analyses of the song writing and production techniques used by the band in recording the album. Rolling Stone covered Freiman in “10 Things You Didn’t Know About Beatles Music” and if you’re a music lover, Freiman’s focus is “strictly” on the music. 

Tickets are $15 each.  For more info, check out Beatles Lectures and www.jazz.fm
