‘Music’ offers cure for cabin fever

Published 12:33 am Thursday, January 30, 2014

For those who are feeling the craziness of cabin fever and need a reason to get out, the temperature should be a relatively balmy 40 degrees when the curtain goes up on The Music of Our Lives at LBWCC tonight.


Organizer Steve Hubbard said despite major interruptions to people’s schedules by the weather this week, he decided to go on with this program tonight as planned.

“People have been in the house long enough,” he said late Wednesday, when ice had practically crippled the community for 24 hours. “Let’s get out.”

In the program set for 7 p.m., a 30-member community chorus and a number of small groups and individuals will provide entertainment in The Music of Our Lives, a project that coincides with the Smithsonian exhibit currently on display at the Chamber of Commerce, The Way We Worked.

Hubbard said some of the music is clearly related to work.

“It’s all local talent, and we’ll also have a sing-a-long,” he said.

First Baptist Music Minister Dwight Crigger is directing the community chorus formed for the occasion. Other performers include Monica Barton, Savannah Ricks,

William Barnes, Taylor Weeks, Walter and Judith Moore, Jimmy Wilson, Samuel Moore, the Moores and More, Thomas Hayle and friends, and the Dixie Dandies.

“Commercials” will be performed by Roger Powell, Cathy Powell and Darlene.

There is no charge for admission.
