‘Four Freshmen’ concert set for Sept. 28 in Heathsville
“The Four Freshmen” will perform in concert, Saturday, September 28, at 7:30 p.m., in the Northumberland High School auditorium, 201 Academic Lane, Heathsville. Sponsored by the Rappahannock Concert Association (RCA), the quartet will kick off the RCA’s 2013-14 concert season.
To many music enthusiasts, The Four Freshmen need no introduction. Starting as college students in 1948 at Butler University’s School of Music in Indianapolis, the young group won fame with their renditions of “Graduation Day,” “Poinciana,” “Day by Day,” “Route 66,” and their first hit single record, “It’s a Blue World.” Stan Kenton played a major role in advancing the early career of The Four Freshmen, and their unique sound strongly influenced other vocal groups, such as “Manhattan Transfer,” “Take 6” and “The Beach Boys.”
Now, more than 65 years later, the names and faces have changed a few times, but the harmony and legendary sound of The Four Freshmen continue to fascinate audiences worldwide.
