Associationgreatest Popular 60s band The Association wraps Foust Artist SeriesGEORGETOWN, KY – Georgetown College’s Foust Artist Series concludes its 31st season with a spring concert by The Association, one of the most successful bands to come out of the 1960s.

The performance will be Monday, April 14, at 8 p.m. in John L. Hill Chapel on Georgetown’s campus, 400 East College Street, in Georgetown.

In 1967, The Association made history by being the first band anywhere to open a rock festival – the now historic, Monterey Pop Festival.

A number of achievement awards have been earned by the band including RIAA certification for 6 gold records and 3 platinum records. Their album, THE ASSOCIATION GREATEST HITS, is now double platinum and continues to be one of the longest best-selling albums for the Warner Brothers label, according to their Web site.

“Windy,” “Cherish,” “Along Comes Mary,” “One Too Many Mornings,” and “Never My Love” are songs that quickly come to mind. They are among the many top sellers and easily remembered.

Tickets will be available at the door. Prices for adults, $10; senior citizens, $8; non-Georgetown College students, $5. Georgetown College students, faculty, and staff admission is covered with the G-Card.

The Foust Artist Series was established in 1983 through an endowment by the late Mary Louise Foust, class of 1938, as a memorial to her parents. The endowment enables the college to annually bring to campus a variety of cultural activities.
