The Rotary Schools Music Festival is on tomorrow at the Dean William Lake Cultural Centre.
The festival will feature a variety of music with solo, chorale, ensemble and dance competitions throughout the night.
Speaking to OBSERVER Entertainment, President of the Rotary Club of Antigua, Cordell Josiah, said that the festival has long been in the pipeline.
“This is something that The Rotary Club of Antigua has thought about for almost two years now and we are now able to put it together with the aid of the Ministry of Education,” Josiah said.
The president said that the festival is seeking to promote music among schoolchildren and “to foster an appreciation of music in an environment that is committed to excellence.
“The philosophy of the festival is to encourage participation in the performance of music and other fine arts by the school-aged students,” Josiah added.
The event will feature the students of the Sunnyside Tutorial, St Andrew’s, Bethesda Primary, Five Islands Primary, Potters Primary, Island Academy, Jennings Primary and the Wesleyan Junior Academy.
Not to be left out, the island’s secondary schools will also be participating. Among those schools in the lineup are: Antigua Girls’ High, Princess Margaret, Jennings Secondary, St Anthony’s Secondary and the Antigua Grammar School.
The festival starts at 6 pm and admission is free. The Rotary Club and the Ministry of Education are inviting everyone to witness and enjoy the talents of the youth.
