Celebrate Early Days of Rock with the Sensations
April 22, 2013

Do you ever long for the days when, pardon the cliché, rock and roll was new? Are you a bebop fan? Miss the super girl groups of the 50s and 60s? What about the music of the Beatles? If you fall into any of those categories, you’ll want to catch the Walters State Sensations’ spring production of “It’s Still Rock-N-Roll to Me?”
This year’s concert celebrates the 50s and the 60s and includes medleys saluting the Beach Boys, the Everly Brothers, the Mamas and the Papas and much, much more. Music from this era has a “feel good” sound unlike any other, according to Laura Ritter, director of the show and assistant dean of humanities at Walters State.
Ritter arranged the show with her students in mind. The Beatles are very popular among her young students, Ritter said.
“The Beatles are so much more interesting and complex compared to what is being written today. Students really like their music,” Ritter said.
 Performances are at 7:30 p.m. on April  26-27. Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and $5 for students. To make reservations, call (423) 585-6922 between 8-4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday. Tickets can also be purchased at the box office an hour before showtime.

Inman Humanities Complex on the Morristown campus.
