Beach Music is subject of new evening course at Coastal Carolina University

A new evening course for adults, "Beach Music: Yesterday, Today & Forever," will be offered through Coastal Carolina University's Lifelong Learning Society on Tuesday evenings, Jan. 21 to Feb. 11, from 7 to 8 p.m. in the Edwards Humanities Building Recital Hall. The fee for the course is $40 or $30 for members of the Lifelong Learning Society.

The non-credit course will explore the origins of Beach Music to discover how it became a distinctive part of the lifestyle of the Carolinas, according to course instructor Harry Turner, president of the Beach Music Association International (BMAI) and a preeminent authority on the subject. The course is designed to be interactive and entertaining, with Beach Music performers and songwriters visiting the class for discussions and demonstrations.

Coastal established a partnership with BMAI in late 2002 for the purpose of integrating the study of Beach Music, an art form indigenous to the Grand Strand area, into Coastal's academic curriculum.

Turner has been recognized by the South Carolina House of Representatives for his contribution to the increased awareness of Beach Music throughout the state and the world. He is the author of This Magic Moment, a historical anthology of Beach Music, rock 'n' roll and doo-wop.
