Tobago choir wows New York audiences
The tonal magic of a cappella reverberated through the Trinidad and Tobago Consulate in New York as The Signal Hill Alumni Choir mesmerised the packed audience with a handful of deftly-performed folk and gospel renditions. The Scarborough-based 30-member musical outfit was in the Big Apple as part of the “seven best choirs in the world,” selected to perform at a music festival commemorating the signing of the UN Charter in June 1945. After the consulate performance, the group was hailed as Ambassadors of Peace by Patrick Sciarratta, executive director of Friendship Ambassadors Foundation, the non-governmental organisation (NGO) behind a special New York musical festival to commemorate the signing of the United Nations Charter in June 1945. Sciarratta said the world-acclaimed group was selected for its “sheer genius,” and was a testament to its growing global appeal.
