Where Will You Take Your Child This Weekend?
This is late notice, but better late than never. Here is something you can check out today at Anne Johnson Auditorium, St. Gabriel’s School, just off Purity Bakeries in Lower Collymore Rock, St. Michael.
It is a classical concert with a twist. Even better, it is for a worthy cause, to raise funds for young musicians pursuing their dreams to study music overseas. In the midst of beautiful traditional pieces by composers such as Bach, Brahms, Mozart and Tchaikovsky, rendered on various instruments such as the piano, clarinet, saxophone, flute and violin, there will be vocal pieces of non-classical origin and even rhythm poetry.
The young musicians themselves, Erica Ellis and Jaron Boyce will perform, as well as several guest artistes including the multi-talented and prolific Roger Gittens and the Cecilian Chorale.
Although tickets are on sale, feel free to pay at the door. Adult tickets are $15.00 and children $10.00.
Last weekend I took my 11 year old to a Royal Barbados Police Force Band concert and she completely enjoyed their wide repertoire, from classical, to Broadway tunes, to folk songs to calypso. Music appreciation is a crucial part of any child’s well-rounded development, so why not take your child to a concert today?
“Where Will You Be Taking Your Child This Weekend?” is a weekly feature of suggestions of places to go in Barbados that is appropriate family fare. Check back every Thursday and see where you will take your child over the weekend.
