Deconstructing the Beatles’ White Album

These screenings of Deconstructing the Beatles’ White Album are pre-recorded performances.

Come 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 on the bestselling record that would be known as the White Album. Released in 1968, it encompasses almost every style of music—from hard rock to country to chamber music to avant-garde

Deconstructing the Beatles with Scott Freiman

After a few years of hosting Scott Freiman’s incredibly engaging series, Deconstructing the Beatles, we’re now proud to be filming his performances, which will allow them to be distributed widely. We are thrilled to be screening the four we’ve shot and hosting three brand-new shows, which we’ll capture on film this summer.

Scott Freiman combines his love of the Beatles with his experience as a composer, producer, and engineer to deliver unique multimedia presentations about the band’s creative process. With rare insights, anecdotes, film clips, and recordings, he takes audiences on a journey through performances and recording sessions, allowing viewers to see and hear the evolution of groundbreaking songs and understand their lasting influence on popular music. Freiman has composed music for more than 10 films, as well as the Emmy-award–winning BBC/Discovery series Life.

Tickets: $8 (members), $13 (nonmembers)
