“During the 1960s, there was a lot of experimentation in music and theatre. This show is arranged to reflect that variety,” said J. Andrew Dickenson, Performing Arts Coordinator and Professor of Music at Cecil College. “We try to provide our students with a variety of opportunities and expose them to different genres. It helps keeps things interesting, and it’s a good way to challenge students when learning about new composers and playwrights.”
