John Lennon: Watching The Wheels

Thursday, June 10, 2021  07:00pm  08:00pm


2020 marked what would have been John Lennon’s 80th birthday, and it was also the 40th anniversary of his untimely death in New York City. Accordingly, this program, taking its name from one of his final hits, celebrates the life and times of the poetic Beatle who gave us such classics as “All You Need is Love, ” “Eight Days A Week,” “Strawberry Fields Forever,” “Help” and many others. We’ll trace Lennon’s life from his early days in Liverpool through the Beatles’ success and eventual breakup in 1969, as he moved on to spend the 1970s exploring other interests, from solo albums to campaigning for peace with his wife, artist Yoko Ono. The upbeat, fast-moving program features video, music and the clever insights Lennon was known for. As he sang on Sgt. Pepper, “A splendid time is guaranteed for all.” The Zoom link will be shared with patrons who register.
