Introduction to Urban Vocal Group Harmony (including Doo-Wop) 1950s to Mid-1960s. Richard Kwatnoski aka "Squire," a radio producer for over 20 years for Radio Fairfax (a local free-form non-commercial station playing a unique mix of genres & styles) will help us explore through slides and music, the who, what, when and where of this very popular musical art form. Emanating from America's cities in the 1950's-1960's, the music reflected economic and racial influences. Squire's presentation will be accompanied by recordings of the most transformational groups of the era and explore sounds from the nation's major markets.  Co-sponsored by BMAV and Connie Morella library.
