“What in the world’s come over you…?” Jack Scott, “What in the World’s Come Over You” The lyrics of the 1950’s and early 60’s almost always portrayed innocent love between innocent people. There was no violence, sexual power or anger. It was an age of idealism and reverence for girls, women, or in the case of lady performers, “the guy.” A segment of music in the early era of rock and roll expressed the sadness of a relationship in a manner that perhaps even helped heal after a breakup in real life. The majority of songs of the 1950’s carried…

“Let’s go surfin now, everybody’s learnin how, come on a safari with me…” The Beach Boys Of all the various trends and fads that influence the younger generation there is only one that transcends from a sport to music. While surfing is not a new sport, it is, or was, in the dawn of 1960, a relatively new way of life. Surfing came to California by way of Hawaii. Wave riding had been a past time for two thousand years but found its way to Huntington Beach in 1914 when George Freeth would become the first surfer to catch a…

One of the finest examples of romantic ballet, Giselle is the tale of love, betrayal and redemption between the peasant girl Giselle and Prince Albrecht.

As an admitted hopeless romantic, those of us who love our 1950’s and early 60’s Rock & Roll and Doo Wop music cannot get enough of the nostalgic sounds of the era. There is something magical in the music. There is something magical in the music. The groups, artists and duos of the fifties wormed their way into our hearts and have been embedded in our memories, our friendships, associations and our lives. For two minutes, it is like reviewing a photograph or an old movie. It is replaying the scene in our mind that transforms us to that simpler…
As early as the 13th century, “Robehod,” “Rabunhod” and other variations had become common nicknames for criminals. 14th Century ballads tell the story of Robin Hood as a tradesman who lived in Sherwood Forest with his men and frequently clashed with the Sheriff of Nottingham. Little John and Will Scarlet were part of Robin’s “merry” crew - meaning, at the time, an outlaw’s gang - but Maid Marian, Friar Tuck and Alan-a-Dale did not enter the legend until later, possibly as part of the May Day rituals. Beginning in the 15th century Christian revelers in certain parts of England celebrated…

I will admit to being a hopeless romantic! The music of the 1950’s and early 60’s told the story of pure romance. Each song emitted a feeling that was innocent, yet suggestive of raw emotion, with words that reached out and grabbed you, held you and refused to let you go. They drenched their audience in emotive words that communicated what was thought, but could not be verbalized. This was the idyllic world that provided a crystal ball into a romantic respite that transformed the listener away to a comforting and soothing romantic world. The feeling of love that was…
The benefits of being involved in youth theatre have recently been shown to have a lot more impact on the lives of young people than previously thought. In a recent study, youth theatre members were asked to agree or disagree with the statement “Youth theatre has the potential to completely change your life” and a staggering 85.59% agreed. The study goes on to illustrate the many ways in which youth theatre impacts upon the lives of its young participants including the development of social, creative, and communicative skills.

Making Your Memories with Rock & Roll and Doo Wop In the mid 1990’s I attended a concert in Glendale, Ca. that headlined the world-famous Platters. Knowing that the Platters had been around since the late 50’s I was somewhat surprised at how “young” they were. I attributed their somewhat unorthodox style to their longevity. Bringing a long playing 33 1/3 RPM album of theirs, I looked at the photos. The people on stage did not even remotely look like those on my favorite album. What was going on here? As the music industry grew to gigantic proportions, so did…

When you want a vacation and he wants beer, Carlsbad has your back.by Betsy Sanz I enjoy a good beer, but I wouldn’t go out of my way for one. My husband, on the other hand, would not only go out of his way, he would form every vacation around beer if no one else were to be considered. So when we were planning a short getaway, we decided to do something that would excite both of us: a “beer-cation,” where he would ensure we got plenty of great beer, and I would ensure we got plenty of “cation.” The…

The classic story of The Miracle Worker tells the story of Annie Sullivan and her student, blind and mute Helen Keller. It dramatizes the volatile relationship between the lonely teacher and her charge. Trapped in a secret, silent world, unable to communicate, Helen is violent, spoiled, almost sub-human and treated by her family as such. Only Annie realizes that there is a mind and spirit waiting to be rescued from the dark, tortured silence. With intense physical and emotional dynamism, Annie’s success with Helen finally comes with the utterance of a single, glorious word: “water”. For most of us, Helen’s…

The music and artists of the 1950’s and early 60’s By Joe D – The Doctor of Doo Wop® You don’t remember me, but I remember you… Tears on My Pillow – Little Anthony & The Imperials One cannot blame or give credit to the artists and songwriters of the Rock & Roll era for the sounds that were created in the 50’s and early 60’s. There was a natural evolution of the music that was started by “baba loo” Bing Crosby, Louie “Satchmo” Armstrong, The Mills Brothers, The Ink Spots, Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday and sooooo many more!…
In a musical tribute to the United Kingdom’s northern most country, former assistant conductor of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, David Danzmayr, makes his Pacific Symphony debut leading three different musical perspectives evoking the wild, romantic landscapes of Scotland. Most recognizable are Max Bruch’s fantasy on Scottish folk melodies for violin, played with great virtuosity by Chinese violinist Ning Feng, and Mendelssohn’s “Scottish” Symphony, inspired by a walking tour of the ruins of Edinburgh’s Holyrood Palace. Less familiar but also highly evocative is Scottish composer Hamish MacCunn’s “Land of the Mountains and the Flood”—a “charming Scotch overture that carries you…

What we call Valentine’s Day has been celebrated for centuries in many cultures under many names. Early Roman rituals worshiped Lupercus, the Roman god of fertility, who blessed the young men’s rites of passage. Often when Roman armies occupied conquered countries they introduced the festival of Lupercalia in which boys drew names of girls out of an urn to determine their partners for the day or even longer. Pope Gelasius decided to replace the pagan ritual of Lupercalia with the celebration of St. Valentine because a man and a woman living in intimacy was thought to be too immoral. As…

By“Joe D, The Doctor of Doo Wop”tm We are a culture forever fascinated by our past and our future. We gaze into crystal balls, check our horoscopes, dream of a life less complicated and wish for the house on a hill, a luxury car, and the ideal mate. We also reflect on our childhood, our adolescence. We embrace fond memories of times that were fun, full of adventure, heartbreak and a lack of responsibility. That was a description of the 1950’s in the United States. It was clearly a simpler time. The 1950’s was a unique period. It was before…

Welcome to 2017! Did you make your New Year’s resolutions? It’s a 4,000-year tradition that dates to the Babylonians who started their new years at the Spring Equinox in a 12-day religious festival known as Akitu. The most common resolutions then were to pay up on debts and return things that were borrowed. Later in ancient Rome, Julius Caesar changed the calendar and established January 1 as the beginning of the new year circa 46 B.C. January was named for Janus, a two-faced god who looked backwards into the previous year and ahead into the future. Sacrifices were made to…
