Brief Activity DescriptionThis is an IRA request for the ART/PAMU 231 course the Beatles: Music, Fashion & Culture course. This academic year I plan on again having as a guest Beatles Engineer Geoff Emerick, who was the senior engineer with the Beatles from 1966-1970. Mr. Emerick engineered the landmark albums Revolver, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Magical Mystery Tour, The White album and Abbey Road albums. Four of these five albums were voted in the top fourteen in Rolling Stone magazines 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. I also plan on having Laurence Juber who recorded and toured with Paul McCartney and Wings. Mr. Juber will be performing and speaking to my Beatles classes and doing a performance master class with the CI University Orchestra course that I will teach. Students will be performing for Mr. Juber and he will be mentoring the students using his professional experience as his guide. Bringing in such high caliber artists who commute from Los Angeles requires money to pay for the event and this I why am requesting $4500 in honorarium from IRA to ensure educationally enriching multicultural musical events like this will continue to benefit our students at CI.

Bring Benefit to CampusOver the last ten years I've hosted over 50 IRA funded events that have benefited thousands of CI students. Some key examples are the April 2013 10th Anniversary Multicultural Dolphinpalooza event that was attended by over 900 CI students, the April 2012 Beatles tribute concert by Paperback Writer in front of the Broome library attended by over 350 students, faculty, staff and local community, and the November 2012 Geoff Emerick MVS Speaker series event that was attended by over 250 CI students, faculty and local community. These multicultural events include the guest artists and performers interacting and engaging with the students. Many students have commented that these events are the highlight of their time at CI and an invaluable part of their CI University experience.
