The Albert Wisner Public Library is hosting three virtual music programs entitled, “The Three B’s of Music with Barry Wiesenfeld.”
On Wed., Dec. 2 at 6 p.m. join the Library for “Back to Bach.” Johann Sebastian Bach literally and figuratively wrote the book on how music works. The forms, harmonies, progressions used today were outlined by him more than 300 years ago. His influence is everywhere. In this class participants will listen to some of the remarkable works he left us, and learn why they are so remarkable.
On Wed., Dec. 9 at 6 p.m. the program “Learning Ludwig (Beethoven)” will be held virtually. The year 2020 marks the 250th anniversary of Ludwig van Beethoven’s birth, and there are celebrations worldwide. In this presentation, listen to some of his great work and explore the person behind the genius.
On Wed., Dec. 16 at 6 p.m., “The Beatles” will be featured. The Beatles did for pop music what Beethoven did for the classical world: mastered what came before them and then took everyone in a new direction. Lyrics, instrumentation, studio techniques (and more) will all be discussed.

A virtual program about The Beatles will be held on Wed., Dec. 16.
