Frolic to relieve cabin fever
The Lake Superior Ragtime Society hosts "Frigid Frolics Concert," also known as Cabin Fever Reliever, at 1 p.m. Feb. 18 at a new location in Superior, Concordia Lutheran Church, 1708 John Ave.
It's just two blocks west of Hammond Avenue and offers a convenient location with lots of parking.
Every year the group recognizes Superior''s own ragtime composer, Alvin Marx, whose home was only a few blocks away from where we will meet. Marx worked on the railroad in Superior but spent most of his free time pursuing musical interests, including composing and performing. His most notable composition was "Frigid Frolics" rag in 1905.
The society board of directors also announced two new members, Alexander Sandor and Brett Quist.
