Theory professor Vincent Benitez's research will be featured in the Penn State Alumni Association's City Lights program on June 8, 2017 at the Paley Center for Media in New York City. Benitez will speak on "The Beatles' Revolver: The Best of All Time?"
Released by the Beatles in 1966, Revolver consistently ranks as one of the best albums of all time. It exerted a transformative influence not only on the pop music of the 1960s but also for generations to come. The lecture will examine the wide-ranging songs of Revolver, considering both their lyrical and musical import in light of the pop culture of its time.
A reception will precede the presentation. For more information and registration information, please see the Penn State Alumni Association website.
