Joel on the Auction Block
On 21, Nov 2012 | In News | By admin
Joel recently donated a night of fun and learning about one of the world’s greatest music and pop culture phenomena, The Beatles, to the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation for their 7th annual Simply the Best Gala.
From the auction book:
Come together with 10-15 of your closest friends for a catered dinner buffet and a Beatles presentation with composer Dr. Joel Friedman at the BJALCF Living Room in San Carlos, CA. The Beatles’ recent remastered recordings remind us that fifty years after they first exploded onto the pop music scene, The Beatles still capture our imagination as few groups have. Why?
The answer goes beyond fads, hairstyles, or fan hysteria. While the screaming quieted down years ago, the power and originality of their astonishing body of creative work still speaks clearly and loudly today. This evening will offer a clear-eyed assessment of an aspect of The Beatles’ work as they developed from a local cover band to arguably some of the most influential musicians of the 20th century; more than just history, Joel will offer a unique composer’s perspective on their work. A splendid time is guaranteed for all! Generously donated by Dr. Joel Friedman, BJALCF and The Office Bar & Grill
