Summer singing for the FUN of it in the A Capella Doo-Wop Style. Learn to sing in this beautifully pure style of music, sung a cappella (without instruments).  This style created by African-American artists on the East Coast in the late 1930s became hugely popular in mainstream music in the 1950s and 1960s. How mainstream did it get? Think The Four Seasons and The Beach Boys and songs such as Why Do Fools Fall in Love?  If you ever thought you might like to sing in a group, now is your chance. Experienced and novice singers will have a blast tackling some of the classics. Students will learn:
  • What their vocal range is
  • How to sing a harmony line
  • How to blend with other singers
  • How to hold a harmony line against other parts
  • How to improve your vocal pitch
Marcia Mendels has been singing since childhood and now sings and plays keyboards in NightHawk, Off the Chart and the SoHum Girls Band.

The Community and Economic Development department partners with the community to contribute to the economic vitality of the region, provides workforce training to support local employers' needs, and provides lifelong learning opportunities within the District. Community & Economic Development courses are not-for-credit classes offered in addition to the College’s academic program. The program is a self-supporting entity of College of the Redwoods. The courses are presented for your recreation and enjoyment.
