Archetypal Music: The Beatles/Richard Wagner-CANCELLED
April 4 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pmPrepaid Cost: $35 – $40
Presented by Ronald Schenk, M.S.W., Ph.D.
The music of the Beatles is classified as “pop” which usually connotes temporary popularity, but the songs of the Beatles can be seen to hold archetypal meanings which allow them to reverberate with us decades after their composition. This presentation will explore the archetypes expressed in several Beatles songs, .juxtaposing them with pieces from classical musical, predominately Richard Wagner’s “Ring Cycle,” depicting starkly mythical imagery of cosmic transformation. We will see how different genres of music reflect each other, as well as giving us a ground for conscious experience of daily life.
