Brian Wilson Presents Pet Sounds: The final Performances at Hartman Arena on Sunday, April 2. Tickets available at the Hartman Arena Box Office, online at ticketmaster.com, and by phone at 1-800-745-3000.
Brian Wilson is one of popular music’s most deeply revered figures, the main creative force behind some of the most cherished recordings in rock history. Indeed, it is no exaggeration to call Brian Wilson one of the most influential composers of the last century. Wilson’s remarkable journey began in a modest Hawthorne, California home that was filled with music.
In the mid-1960s, Wilson composed, arranged and produced Pet Sounds (1966), considered one of the greatest albums ever made.
Wilson is widely regarded as one of the most innovative and significant songwriters of the late 20th century, and his work is credited as a major innovation in the field of music production. According to Erik Davis, “Not only did [he] write a soundtrack to the early ’60s, but Brian let loose a delicate and joyful art pop unique in music history and presaged the mellowness so fundamental to ’70s California pop.”
