Does the name Ray Evans ring a bell? Maybe it rings silver bells?
Evans is the man behind hits like Silver Bells, Que Sera Sera, Mona Lisa and other popular songs. The songwriter’s documents are now at the University of Pennsylvania’s library for cataloguing.
Penn will sort through Evans’ letters, sheet music and notebooks, the way it’s done for conductor Eugene Ormandy and opera singer Marian Anderson. An exhibition is set for 2012.
