Hopkins Wednesday Noon Series
Begins with "Doo Wop Cops"

D.C.'s Finest, a Washington D.C.-based a cappella group, will open the Spring 2003 Wednesday Noon Series at The Johns Hopkins University on Feb. 5 with a performance, "Doo Wop Cops." This group of active and retired Washington, D.C., police officers will perform nostalgic renditions of songs of the past as well as some current hits. Their unique singing style explains why they are regarded as one of the best a cappella groups in the country.

Presented by the Johns Hopkins Office of Special Events, the Wednesday Noon Series is now in its 37th season of cultural programming on the Homewood campus. All programs in the series are held on Wednesdays from noon to 1 p.m. in Shriver Hall on the Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles Street in Baltimore. They are open to the public and admission is free.

Other spring events in the series are:
