50's Music Program at Chatham Senior Center, June 8th

The Senior Center of the Chathams will present "The Music of the 1950's" on Tuesday June 8 at 12:30 pm. Stephen Marcone, Professor of Music at William Paterson University discusses the massive changes in the listening tastes of America over the decade that evolved from the popular songs by Nat King Cole, Perry Como, Doris Day, and Pat Boone to the early rock and roll artists. Audio and video examples include the above plus the early pioneers of rock.

Dr. Marcone was a trumpet player in a rock music group in the late 60's and early 70's, recording for Epic Records and touring the country. He later joined the faculty of the School of Music at Syracuse University followed by 15 years as Chairperson of the Music Department at William Paterson University. He also recently served for two years as Interim Dean of the College of Arts & Communication. He has written articles for numerous publications and has lectured at the Hartt School of Music, NYU and many National and Regional conferences. He is the author of "Managing Your Band." Each summer Marcone conducts the university's Summer Jazz Ensemble. Professor Marcone holds a B.A., M.M., and Ed.D. from Syracuse University.

All are invited to attend this free program funded by the Horizons Speakers Bureau of the New Jersey Council for the Humanities, a state partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Please call (973)635-4565 to register. Attendees are encouraged to wear something from the 50's and to come early for a treat from the "Soda Shop."
