LUMBERTON — The Robeson County Arts Council will join with the community for a night of song and healing on Jan. 6 at First Baptist Church.
The 12th Night Concert of Healing and Hope starts at 7 p.m. and will feature some of the best musical talent in Robeson County in a night of song to “bring light back into our world after Hurricane Matthew,” according to concert organizers.
Last year’s 12th Night Concert enabled the Art’s Council to replace a piano the Public Schools of Robeson County lost to the flooding generated by Hurricane Matthew. The donations raised at the Jan. 6 concert will be used to foster music and arts education for children.
Performers include Mark Andersen, the Lumberton High School Chorus, Carol Deloach and Lynn Andersen.
Audience members can expect everything from ragtime to gospel to classical to pop. Lumberton Mayor Bruce Davis will open the program with his words of praise for what county residents have been able to accomplish since the devastation.
“Love is a many splendored thing, and we will love with our voices and bring light through our music,” Mark Anderswn said.
The concert will be the First Baptist Church main auditorium near Seventh and Walnut streets in Lumberton.
