Rock And Roll History: "The King Lives!"

The Lakewood Division of Aging is offering a program sure to be of interest to all the armchair Rock and Roll historians out there. Many of us have strong opinions on the subject of Rock and Roll, and which of us does not have many vivid memories attached to certain groups and songs? Why not take some time out of your busy schedule to learn a little more about one of the true icons of Rock? The Lakewood Division of Aging, with the generous sponsorship of CareSource, is pleased to offer another in its series of Rock and Roll history classes with “The King Lives!”, a musical history of the life of Elvis Presley.   

Beginning Monday, April 22, 2019, Rock and Roll History will be offered at the Lawther Center, 16024 Madison Ave. The class will begin at 1:00 PM. Session one will tie up the loose ends of last Fall’s class: “The History of the Folk Rock Movement.”  Sessions two, three and four will examine the life of Elvis Presley. The music of Elvis can be divided into three phases: Early Elvis, from 1950 to 1958, when he was drafted into the army, Elvis in the movies, when he starred in 31 movies, from 1956 through 1969, and late Elvis, from 1965 through 1977. This class is another in a long series of Rock and Roll history classes offered by the Lakewood Division of Aging. These classes are extremely popular with attendees and we are confident that this will be well received. Rock and Roll History: “The King Lives!" has been generously sponsored by CareSource, and will be offered free of charge to participants. The Division of Aging does ask that attendees preregister by calling the Activities Department at 216-529-5005.
