Achieve harmony with Doo Wop Project at CCA

ORONO, Maine — The Doo Wop Project will bring street corner harmonies to the Collins Center for the Arts stage at 8 p.m. Saturday, April 1.

The show traces the evolution of doo-wop from the classic sound of five guys singing on a street corner to today's biggest radio hits.

The singers will cover foundational tunes of The Crests, The Belmonts and The Flamingos, then turn their attention to the songs of Smokey Robinson, The Temptations and The Four Seasons before finishing with “doo-wopified” renditions of Michael Jackson, Jason Mraz and Amy Winehouse smashes.

The group includes stars of Broadway's “Jersey Boys” and “Motown: The Musical.” The performers bring unparalleled authenticity of sound and vocal excellence to recreate — and in some cases re-imagine — some of the greatest music in American pop and rock history.

For more information or to purchase tickets, visit the CCA website. Tickets are $32 for orchestra seats, $28 for balcony seats and $6 for students in K-12. Orders that include K-12 tickets must be purchased in person or by calling 581.1755 and be picked up at the box office the night of the performance. Call as well to request an accommodation.
