Description

A Symposium Hosted by the University of Rochester Institute for Popular Music and the Eastman School of Music

September 27-29, 2019

September 26, 2019, will mark the 50th anniversary of the worldwide release of the Beatles' Abbey Road. While Let It Be was released in 1970, most of the tracks on that album were recorded earlier, making Abbey Road the band’s last album project. Coming as the last installment in a series of very successful Beatles albums spanning the years since 1963, it is tempting to view Abbey Road as a culmination of the band’s career. Our interdisciplinary symposium will commemorate the anniversary with scholarly presentations, keynote addresses, poster sessions and other special events open to the public.

Featured speakers will include Ken Townsend MBE (engineer and General Manager at Abbey Road Studios), Andy Babiuk(author, Beatles Gear), Walter Everett (author, The Beatles as Musicians), Kenneth Womack (author, Maximum Volume: The Life of Beatles Producer George Martin), Kristine Stiles, Nicole Biamonte, Mark Spicer, Katie Kapurch, Andrew Flory, Victor Coelho, Robert Fink, and Bruce Pilato.

Regular and student registration includes admission to all conference sessions and keynotes, along with breakfast (continental) and lunch on all three days of the conference. A separate ticket for Saturday night's special dinner at the Inn on Broadway must be purchased in addition to regular registration. A discounted rate is provided for students, as well as an early registration discount valid through September 9.

A special reduced-price registration ($30.00) will be available on September 15th for those participants who would like to attend only the Friday and Saturday evening keynotes and After Hours sessions. Please note that no meals are included with this special registration.
