Remembering Rosie: The Rosemary Clooney Story
with Jane Ellen
Rosemary Clooney has been referred to as “one of the best friends a song ever had.” Clooney's career spanned six decades during which she became one of America’s most beloved entertainers on vinyl, in films, on radio, and on television. When she received a Lifetime Achievement Grammy Award in 2002 few realized that this marked her achievements not only in music, but in life. Clooney was nothing if not a true survivor, not only of the ever-changing music industry but in spite of a mental breakdown after the assassination of Robert Kennedy.
Jane Ellen has been presenting lifelong learning classes for over 25 years. She graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts from the University of New Mexico, and later received Professional Certification from the Music Teachers National Association. As a lecturer she specializes in all aspects of music and entertainment history, with the occasional foray into other areas of her eclectic interests. Ellen’s presentations benefit not only from her gifts as a storyteller, but from a lifetime of work as an independent scholar, performer, published composer, and recording artist.
