Amy’s Mu­sic Pro­ject Con­cert

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

The Amy’s Gift to Saint Lu­cia Mu­sic Pro­ject is hav­ing an End of Year Con­cert to show­case the mu­sic tal­ents of the young per­sons at the Boys Train­ing Cen­tre and Dun­not­tar School. The free con­cert is sched­uled for Sun­day 28th June, 2015 at 3:00pm at the Castries Com­pre­hen­sive Sec­ondary School. In ad­di­tion, there will be per­for­mances from lo­cal band Kosmik Rid­dim.

Amy’s Gift is a mu­sic pro­ject which has been funded for one year by the Amy Wine­house Foun­da­tion. It brings mu­sic and singing to the chil­dren at Dun­not­tar School and the Boys Train­ing Cen­tre. The aim is to im­prove the health and hap­pi­ness of the par­tic­i­pants by ex­tend­ing the op­por­tu­ni­ties for mu­sic.

Teach­ing started in Septem­ber 2014, un­der­taken by Mr. John Polius, pro­fes­sional mu­si­cian and mu­sic teacher. The fund­ing was for 654 hours of tu­ition with Mr. Polius spend­ing half of his time at Dun­not­tar School and half at the Boys Train­ing Cen­tre.

The Amy Wine­house Foun­da­tion fund­ing has pro­vided the mu­si­cal in­stru­ments, the ser­vices of a mu­sic teacher and drug aware­ness train­ing for a one year pe­riod. By this Septem­ber another EC $50,000 needs to be raised to pay for the on­go­ing mu­sic teacher’s salary, new in­stru­ments, re-tun­ing the steel pans and sus­tain­ing the drug aware­ness pro­gramme. The Mu­sic Pro­ject needs spon­sors and pri­vate do­na­tions for the sec­ond year be­gin­ning Septem­ber 2015, and for sub­se­quent years, to en­sure on-go­ing suc­cess. Please show sup­port by at­tend­ing the free con­cert and, where pos­si­ble, promis­ing aid.
