They All Sang on the Corner
Join music historian Robert Cohen when he discusses the style of the vocal group harmony that became known as “doo-wop” on Tuesday, Nov. 14 at 2:00 p.m. in the Community Room of the Main Library, 159 Bayview Avenue.
This presentation will consider doo-wop’s musical, social, cultural, and religious roots; and give patrons an opportunity to hear how this music, in its innocence and quest for harmony, conveyed the poetry of inner-city life. Examples will be given from black, white, integrated groups and from all five boroughs of New York City.
Robert Cohen’s programs grew from teaching New York City music at the New School in New York, from many years of showcasing Jewish (and some American folk and popular) music on the radio and on several original series in New York and on NPR’s “One People, Many Voices: American-Jewish Music Comes of Age” (now in the permanent collection of the Paley Center for Media in New York), and from studying Graduate Education at the Jewish Theological Seminary.
