A Long and Winding Road: A Personal Reflection on the
Life and Music of the Beatles
On March 4, 2014, Glenn Henricksen will present a personal
reflection on life and the music of the Beatles.
More than fifty years after the formation of a rock group named
The Beatles and more than forty years after their demise, their
music is still listened to, analyzed, written about, and above all,
still moves the listener. Why? What is there about their work that
continues to have such an impact? Mr. Henricksen will share why he
feels the music has moved him and will continue to affect us all in
the future. He was first introduced to the depth and meaning of the
Beatles’ music more than forty-five years ago and has pondered,
studied, used, and enjoyed it ever since.
