Social club Xi Chi Delta’s “How the West Was Won” claimed Makin’ Music 2019’s top prize Saturday night, April 6, 2019, at Freed-Hardeman University’s Loyd auditorium.
Phi Kappa Alpha’s “California Dreamin’,” and Sigma Rho’s “Friday Night Fever,” came in second and third places respectively. The Spirit of Makin’ Music award was presented to Sigma Rho. The theme of FHU’s 42nd annual Makin’ Music was “The Music in Me.”
The university announced the creation of the Peggy Weaver Endowment Fund to support future Makin’ Music shows. Weaver has served as director of Makin’ Music’s hosts and hostesses for the past 21 years. The funds will supplement the money budgeted by the university.

“Makin’ Music means a lot to me and I love seeing the kids’ creativity and the future of what Makin’ Music can be. I would love for my grandkids to be on this stage,” Weaver said Saturday night.
Xi Chi Delta’s show was directed by a team of six students: Logan Campbell, Ben Coleman, Grace Anne Butt, Rebecca Lawrence, Meg Lusk and Weston Stone, who said the excitement from Saturday’s win is still going strong.
“As directors we poured our hearts and all of our energy into the show and rushing that stage after winning first place was an unbelievable feeling,” Stone said. “But an even better feeling is seeing the tight bonds that have come from the experience and the new friendships that have formed. We have a saying in Xi Chi, ‘Do it for the person next to you.’ As our cast huddled up on the stage, they began holding hands and singing praises to our God, I truly realize how amazing this little family we have here is. And win or lose, I couldn’t be more proud of them.”
Makin’ Music week also includes a host of activities including a show for young students as well as Saturday afternoon’s Party on the Green where fun and fellowship takes place before the final show and winners are announced.
Shows were judged in four categories at the weekend’s three performances. Categories included lyrics, costumes, vocals, and choreography and entertainment value. The complete listing of awards follows:
