(NORTH SALEM, N.Y.) -- The North Salem Madrigals presented the culminating event for their interdisciplinary unit of study of popular music in the 1950s on May 19. American Bandstand at Vic’s Burger Joint let the students showcase the research they did by recreating a broadcast of American Bandstand, as it was hosted by Dick Clark. Students performed popular music of the late ‘50s in solo, small ensemble, and large ensemble performances. Next spring, students will be studying the music of the late 1960s and will perform music from the 1969 Woodstock concert.
