Then, on Friday, Dec. 7, 2018, the library presents a free concert by the Metropolitan Saxophone Quartet, which has been known to mix some Beatles tunes into their repertoire of Mozart and Glenn Miller.
Womack, author of many Beatles books, will discuss his latest project, Sound Pictures: Producing the Beatles with Sir George Martin, at 2 pm on Dec. 2. The talk is free.
If anyone qualifies as the Fifth Beatle, it’s probably Martin, who died in 2016 at age 90.
The straitlaced producer helped the Beatles break new sonic ground with such iconic albums as Revolver, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and Abbey Road.
Womack is an English professor and dean of the McMurray School of Humanities and Social Sciences at Monmouth University, as well as a Beatles blogger for CultureSonar.
The Morristown-based Metropolitan Saxophone Quartet–Erik Donough, Deanna Loertscher, John DiEgidio, James Aslanian and drummer Matt Olsson, all teachers–have been performing together since 2004.
Expect to hear holiday favorites, American Songbook classics and, if you’re lucky, something by Messrs. Lennon, McCartney, Harrison and Starr.
The doors open at 6:45 pm, and refreshments will be served. Sponsored by the Friends of the Morristown & Township Library. The library is at One Miller Road, Morristown. Call 973-538-6161 for more.
