The recent filming of mask-and-music theater group Whimzik marked the first production on a Western Carolina University’s new motion picture stage in Ramsey Regional Activity Center.

Thursdays at the Library hosts singer/songwriter Angela Faye Martin July 21, at 7 p.m.

“Martin’s lyrics are unusually poetic, their descriptions vivid but ultimate meanings often left to the listener’s own interpretation.

Her voice is heavenly, occasionally spooky, glistening and moving on top of these songs like the surface of moonlit water while creatures mutter and chirp in the distance,” said Jeff Clark, of “Stomp and Stammer,” Atlanta, Ga.
