Holiday cheer

Holiday cheer

Holiday cheer is sure to fill Barbados when maestro Thomas Wilkins conducts the Classical/Pops All-Star Orchestra, a wonderful chorus, and special guests as they inaugurate a new seasonal tradition at Apes Hill. High-flying fantasy and wonderment is expected to soar throughout the festival grounds, turning the concert into an entertainment extravaganza on December 12 and […]

Great highs, dull lows

The much anticipated Independence Gospel Explosion came off at the Wildey Gymnasium last Sunday evening without the expected blast.

Explosion of gospel

The much anticipated occasion is almost upon us, and the stage is already set for an exciting Independence weekend of gospel music of the highest quality.

WOW lacking in gala

WOW lacking in gala

The best of the best of Bajan talent was showcased at the National Independence Festival Of Creative Arts Gala at the Garfield Sobers Sports Complex last Sunday night. But, as overheard from many on leaving the Wildey Gymnasium, the Gala was still missing that wow factor. Most of the NIFCA Finals nights were more exciting. […]
