More from Frieman here on what to expect on Monday night:

“In early 1967, the Beatles released a groundbreaking single — John Lennon’s “Strawberry Fields Forever” backed by Paul McCartney’s “Penny Lane.” In its music, lyrics, arrangement, and subject matter, “Strawberry Fields Forever”/”Penny Lane” changed the face of popular music forever.

Join composer/producer Scott Freiman as he takes Beatles fans young and old on “A Trip Through Strawberry Fields”.  In this 90 minute multimedia presentation, Mr. Freiman transports his audience into Abbey Road studio for a look at the revolutionary techniques used during the production of three Beatles’ masterpieces — “Strawberry Fields Forever,” “Penny Lane,” and “A Day In The Life.”

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.”
