Glenn Gass, provost professor and Rudy professor emeritus of music at IU’s Jacobs School of Music, will discuss John Lennon’s mark on music and the world at 8 p.m. Tuesday over Zoom and on Facebook Live of the IU Auditorium page.
The date of the event “Remembering John Lennon 40 Years Later with Glenn Gass” reflects the 40th anniversary of Lennon’s passing at age 40 on Dec. 8, 1980, the day he was shot and killed in New York. Lennon is known for being the founder, co-lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist of the Beatles.
Gass, before retiring from instructing classes in May, taught classes about the origins of rock music, the Beatles and Bob Dylan, according to the IU Auditorium website. He has taught more than 60,000 students over the course of nearly 40 years at IU.
The event is free and will be archived on the IU Auditorium website to watch after the event.
