Thaw your winter blues with LC Jazz this Saturday

VERGENNES — Starting to get a little tired of the grey, cold days of winter? Well, nothing warms the soul more than a room full of familiar faces, playing and singing familiar songs.
Come warm up at the Vergennes Opera House this Saturday, Feb. 9, at 7:30 p.m., with the LC Jazz Band Winter Thaw Concert “Olde Tyme Radio Show.” Best part: it’s free.
The Friends of the Vergennes Opera House will once again offer this free community concert. LC Jazz — a Vergennes-based, 17 piece big band with vocalists — has been playing the music of the greats, (Basie, Ellington, Goodman, Miller, Sinatra, Darin) since 1991. The band has performed for many years to support their music scholarship program for students from Vergennes, Mount Abe and Middlebury High Schools who are entering a music performance or music education program. To date they have given away $36,000 in scholarships.
This year’s Winter Thaw concert will take on the feel of an old time radio show reminiscent of the big band shows that were broadcast during the golden age of radio.
Tickets are free; you can reserve them online at vergennesoperahouse.org, call the opera house (802) 877-6737 or stop by Lulu’s Ice Cream on Main Street. Doors and cash bar by Bar Antidote open at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday. Dancing in the aisles and wherever you can find space, is encouraged. 
Last year’s concert raised close to $1,500 for the LC Jazz scholarship fund. All donations this year will also benefit that fund. See ya there.
