Music in the Rotunda

Thursday, April 24th, 2014

Henry Lim and his String Quartet perform the Beatles

Saturday, May 3
8 p.m.

In 1969 the Beatles aspired to record an album and perform it live without any studio tricks.  However, it was an unenthusiastic effort as they would disband the following year, and contrary to their initial undertakings, the album was edited, overdubbed, reorganized, renamed, and released as their last LP,  Let It Be.  Music Library staff member Henry Lim together with current and former graduate students of the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music will perform the original unreleased album Get Back arranged for vocals, acoustic guitar, and string quartet. Admission is free, and no reservations are required.

Admission is free, but reservations are sometimes required; see instructions in each listing. The rotunda is on the second floor of the Powell Library Building, which is directly across from Royce Hall. For more information, contact Catherine Brown at 310.206.4608.

The UCLA Library offers “Music in the Rotunda” and other cultural programs at no cost to students, faculty, staff, and the community. For information on supporting the Library, contact the development office at giving@library.ucla.edu or 310.206.8526.
