100 voice project music festival returns this year
The 100 Voice Project Music Festival, which caters to the many singers and choral groups, will highlight the talent of many singers and choral groups again this year.
The August 2013 Concert Season for charity is partnering with two charities: Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of Barbados and The Kiwanis – Pride of Barbados.
Tomorrow night, August 22, there will be a jazz type concert at The Barbados Museum, on Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 there will be the major concert and orchestra presentation.
New this year will be the inclusion of a representative from Germany, Judy Bailey who is currently in Brazil on tour with the visit there of the Pope to that country.
Among the We wish to welcome this year, a representative from Germany. In addition, we wish to welcome pianist Canadian based concert pianist Sean Sutherland of Canada, Choral Director Addison Stoddard of the Turks & Caicos and Keyen Lopez from Venezuela are among those aiming to delight audiences this season.
“The 100 Voice Project was conceptualised and delivered in August 2010, and has surpassed the muted expectations of the wide cross section of audiences. In this project, there is the fierce approach to the music and its delivery, and the subtle nuances of sophisticated musicianship.
“Now in its fourth year, the 100 Voice Project continues to create and demonstrate the concept that persons of different backgrounds and cultures can sing in the universal language of music, and do so in phenomenal harmony. This is strongly highlighted in our summer season with the presence of singers and instrumentalists from, Antigua & Barbuda, Dominica, St. Lucia, Trinidad & Tobago, Venezuela, Turks & Caicos and the United States of America, to name a few. These persons joined with Barbadian musicians last summer, along with those from Belgium, Guyana and Canada.
“Based on the responses so far and feedback from various quarters, this year’s project is no less exciting. We continue to expand our following as well as our musician base, to deliver on our overall goal of delivering exceptional quality in music of various genres”, said Music Director Ryan Boyce.
