M&C Sup­ports Youth Or­ches­tra

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Con­tin­u­ing its tra­di­tion of sup­port­ing the Arts, M&C Group of Com­pa­nies was pleased to present the Anse La Raye Charles Cadet Youth Or­ches­tra, rep­re­sented by Mr Gre­gory Piper, the or­ches­tra’s leader/con­duc­tor, with a do­na­tion of $2,500. This gift will help de­fray ex­penses as­so­ci­ated with re­plac­ing and re­pair­ing of in­stru­ments for the or­ches­tra and will as­sist this group of tal­ented, young mu­si­cians in their pur­suit of ex­cel­lence.

The or­ches­tra was es­tab­lished over three years ago and con­sists of 30 mu­si­cians, all of whom are res­i­dents of Anse La Raye, rang­ing in age from 10 to 25 years. Through their in­volve­ment in the or­ches­tra, th­ese young mu­si­cians have en­hanced their skills and some have even been af­forded the op­por­tu­nity to en­ter into the work­force.

Mr Piper was ex­tremely grate­ful for the do­na­tion, declar­ing, “The Anse La Raye Charles Cadet Youth Or­ches­tra is not presently funded and there­fore do­na­tions like this one from M&C help to en­sure that the pro­gramme can con­tinue.” He ac­knowl­edged that M&C has al­ways been will­ing to as­sist with var­i­ous ini­tia­tives.

Mrs Marella De­vaux, Group Mar­ket­ing Man­ager, re­marked that M&C Group of Com­pa­nies ad­mires the com­mit­ment of Mr Piper with this ini­tia­tive. She wished him and the tal­ented mem­bers of the Anse La Raye Charles Cadet Youth Or­ches­tra con­tin­ued suc­cess in their en­deav­ours.
