SMC Talfest Back!

The Star (St. Lucia) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Talfest, the an­nual St. Mary’s Col­lege tal­ent show and fundraiser is back! Now in its 12th year, this time the event prom­ises to showcase more va­ri­ety where the stu­dents’ cre­ativ­ity is con­cerned as well as pre­sent­ing a wider pool of guest artistes.

Launched in 2002, the very first Talfest was ini­ti­ated by then prin­ci­pal Fr. Li­nus Clo­vis and teach­ers Ted San­di­ford and Fiona Wills. The event was later used as a fundraiser for the Col­lege’s sis­ter school in Gre­nada that was rav­aged by hur­ri­cane Ivan.

Since then Talfest has been used as one of the ma­jor fundrais­ers for St. Mary’s Col­lege and has been one of the school’s most suc­cess­ful ac­tiv­i­ties.

This year Talfest is ex­pected to showcase the young Sa­mar­i­ans dis­play­ing their tal­ent in sign­ing, dance, drama and com­edy. They will also stage a one-of-a-kind fash­ion show while a short film pro­duced by the stu­dents will also be show­cased.

The event will be held this evening (Satur­day Novem­ber 8) from 6pm at the Na­tional Cul­tural Cen­ter. Among the guest per­form­ers will be the reign­ing Soca monarch Ezra as well as Michael Robin­son and Orion.

Pro­ceeds from this year’s Talfest will go to­wards im­prov­ing the school’s sports depart­ment. All past and present stu­dents are in­vited to turn out in support of this event.
