If summer had a sound it would have to be the music of The Beach Boys…surf, sun and California dreaming. The program will focus on The Beach Boys “sunniest” years from 1962-1967 and include interview and performance video clips. We’ll trace the arc of the Beach Boys’ career from “Surfin’ U.S.A.”, “Fun, Fun, Fun” and “California Girls” to the more mature Pet Sounds, “Good Vibrations” (the 55th anniversary of its release back in 1966) and the abandoned Smile project. Surf’s Up! Program registration will close 30 minutes prior to the start of the program. Participants will be emailed a Zoom access code 15 minutes before the start of the program, so please include your email in the registration. Please note: You must sign into the room prior to the start of the program. Admittance to the classroom will close five minutes after the program's start time. Space is limited.
