THE FOUR FRESHMEN TO PERFORM AT RVCC THEATRE
The Theatre at Raritan Valley Community College (RVCC) in North Branch will present a performance by the Four Freshmen, Saturday, April 5, at 7 p.m.
The presentation is part of the Theatre?s Merck Series , made possible by a generous grant from The Merck Company Foundation. Tickets to the Four Freshmen cost $25 and $30.
The Four Freshmen was one of the top vocal groups of the 1950s, forming the bridge between the '40s ensembles like the Mel-Tones and the later, harmony-based groups like the Beach Boys and The Manhattan Transfer. New lineups of the group have continued the legendary vocal tradition of the original band, while adding new touches. In 2000 the Four Freshmen was voted Vocal Group of the Year by Down Beat magazine?s readers. Join us for a wonderful, wide-ranging, musical evening with some of the most talented musicians on the road today.
For the fourth year in a row, Courier News readers voted The Theatre at RVCC as the ?Best of the Best? in 2007 in the ?Playhouse/Theater? category. This season the Theatre will present the Major Artists Series ; the 16th annual Merck Series , made possible by a generous grant from The Merck Company Foundation; School-Time Performances , a series for teachers and their students; the Family Series , for families with children ages eight and older; and the Sampler Series , a series of transformational events for youngsters age four and older and their families.
