According to a source close to the concert organizers, for the past 29 years, he participating musicians have brought joy to the hearts of many through the performances of our young people. “It is uplifting to see our young people discipline themselves and harness their talents to produce a program of this quality. This is to be commended and encouraged,” said a spokeperson.
This landmark concert represents several significant milestones. Firstly, this concert represents the longevity and the success of the Music School, their concerts and their continued contributions to the appreciation and advancement of music in our community. For example, some of the present and past musicians of the Music School are already giving service in churches, in other music groups, etc.
Secondly, the concert is in celebration of the appointment as a Canon of Rev. Fr.
Isaiah Phillip, the resident Priest of the St. Peter’s Anglican Church. This appointment will be celebrated 29th June , 2011.
The concert will feature original, sacred, popular and classical music – music to suit every taste, said organizers. Original compositions and arrangements by Lady Hulda Lawrence, which are always a favourite with the audience, will be presented. Some of St. Kitts & Nevis’ best musicians will come together to display their musical gifts in various ways – vocal and instrumental.
Last year’s concert was held to benefit Olivet Gospel Hall. This well-attended concert was described as pure pleasure by those fortunate persons in attendance. The concert was such a success that the Lawrence School of Music made a $10,000 presentation to that Church.
The Music School continues to help with various needs in the community, including food distribution to needy elderly persons every month.
The proceeds of this year’s concert will go to St. Peter’s Anglican Church to aid the continuation of their church’s services and community outreach.
