Course Description

IN PERSON: Many things changed in the U.S. between 1964 and 1973. In popular music, we experienced an unprecedented surge of creativity and artistry that has been unequaled since. The Beatles' appearance on "The Ed Sullivan Show" in February 1964 was a watershed moment that introduced the country to something new and remarkable in popular music. That was, however, only the beginning of what was eventually termed the "British Invasion," as dozens of popular musical artists from England began to populate the American charts as never before. And while they may have hailed from Britain, their music was multidimensional, influenced by blues, jazz, R&B and classical forms to varying degrees. Join us in this lecture-format course as we explore the full spectrum of artists who first appeared in the 10 years from 1964 to 1973. We’ll listen to audio and view video samples from every part of that spectrum. You’re likely to find that much of this music is timeless and still sounds fresh today. | Lecture + Q&A.
