SYLACAUGA, Ala. -B.B. Comer Library’s fall SouthFirst Bank Adult Lecture Series, “Celebrating Alabama’s People, Places and Events,” will begin Wednesday at noon with a virtual “who’s who” of local talent. Spring Street will kick off the series with a musical celebration of the State of Alabama’s 200th birthday.
The program, “Feels So Right—Celebrating Alabama’s Musical Heritage,” will feature David and Catie Simpkins along with Steve Lewis and Matt Crocker. The group will revisit our state’s rich musical history with songs by, about and enjoyed by Alabamians.
Alabama is well known for its rich musical heritage with a cultural identity that embraces religious and secular music for worshipping, remembering, enjoying and fellowshipping with each other. Every person at the “Spring Street” performance will be sure to hear some of their favorite songs from this group of vocalists that Sylacauga is proud to call its own.
“The Comer Library is honored to partner with the SouthFirst Bank to bring this informative and entertaining fall celebration of our state’s birthday to the brown bag lecture audience,” said Library Director Tracey Thomas. “Mark your calendars to come to the Comer Library for the Spring Street group’s kick-off performance— and on the following seven Wednesdays to enjoy some of the state’s best presenters bringing stories of the people, places and events that have shaped our lives.”
Interested adults are invited to bring a sandwich to the Hightower Refreshment Room at 11:00 a.m. for food and fellowship with the library providing beverages and desserts.
The free programs will follow at noon in the Harry I. Brown Auditorium. Working people are welcome to come during their lunch break, and groups are invited to call 256-249-0961 or email [email protected] for information about seating.
