CPS Faculty Research Forum: Book Performance (All University faculty are invited)
Sponsored by: College of Professional Studies Faculty Research Forum and the Center for Teaching and Learning
Presenter: Lawrence Pitilli, College of Professional Studies
In Doo-Wop Acappella: A Story of Street Corners, Echoes, and Three-Part Harmonies, scholar and musician Lawrence Pitilli details this too-little-explored area of 1950s' - early 60s' American culture. At this event, he will discuss how the book was conceived and the challenges inherent in the research. Members of the doo-wop groups the Eternals and Casinos will sing acappella, thus exemplifying this musical genre.
