School of Communications Commemorates Beatles’ Anniversary with ‘Rooftop’ Performance by Abbey Road Warriors

| January 28, 2014

The Abbey Road Warriors performance will be recorded by School of Communications audio aesthetics and video production students.

The year 2014 marks the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ arrival in the U.S. and Thursday, Jan. 30, marks the 45th anniversary of their final live performance as a group – their famous rooftop concert on the roof of their Saville Row recording studio.

The School of Communications and the Department of Audio Aesthetics and Technology is helping to commemorate the event with the Abbey Road Warriors, a local Beatles tribute group. The Abbey Road Warriors will perform a concert at noon Thursday on Webster University’s Emerson Library 4th floor outdoor patio — Webster’s version of “the rooftop.” They will perform the same musical set The Beatles played that day.

Gather in the quad to enjoy the performance.

Students from the School of Communications Department of Audio Aesthetics and Technology will be on hand doing a live sound recording, and a crew of Webster video production students from the Electronic and Photographic Media Department will be taping the event.
