Spend Some Time With the Musicans Of Your Youth: Rock Stars Of The 50's, 60's And 70's

Get ready for a fun and informative musical tour of the music of the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. The Lakewood Division of Aging and the Lakewood Public Library are pleased to offer yet another in a series of classes by “the Doc of Rock and Roll,” Dr. Joel Keller. Previous courses, including “The Early Roots of Rock n’ Roll”, “The Baroque Era” and “The Turbulent Decade of the 60’s” were hugely entertaining and informative. We are expecting more of the same for this class.

The 50’s, 60’s and 70’s were a rich time for Rock n’ Roll music. The class, “Rock Stars of the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s" will concentrate on the careers and music of many of the artists of the period, including Nat King Cole, Elvis Presley, ABBA, Aretha Franklin, Carole King, Neil Diamond, Chicago, The Bee Gees, and Barry Manilow. Other groups and artists will be given their fair share of coverage as well. Joel will provide a bit of biographical information and play many of their songs. There will be a few “One Hit Wonders” that will also be shared.

This class is free for seniors, age 60 and over. It will be held at the Lawther Center, 16024 Madison Ave., and is offered on four successive Mondays: September 18th, 25th, October 2nd and October 9th. The hours will be 1 to 2:15 p.m. Why not come in for lunch at the senior center, and then stay for the class? For more information, or to make a meal reservation, please call the Activities Office at 216-529-5005.
