The School of Communications and the Department of Audio Aesthetics and Technology hosted a live music concert on Jan. 30 to commemorate two major milestone anniversaries of the legendary rock group, The Beatles: the 45th anniversary of their final live performance as a group – a rooftop concert on the roof of their Saville Row recording studio – and the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ arrival in the U.S.
The Abbey Road Warriors, a local Beatles tribute group, performed a noontime concert from Webster University’s Emerson Library 4th floor outdoor patio — Webster’s version of “the rooftop.”
Audio students did a live sound recording of the event and video production students taped the event. Despite the cold temperatures, the performance was clearly a hit with a crowd of more than 100 gathered in the quad, as well as students passing by on their way to class.
