All Stars shine at Classical Jewels
A near packed Lord Kitchener Auditorium of the National Academy for the Performing Arts (Napa) in Port-of-Spain witnessed Classical Jewels XI staged last weekend by Massy Trinidad All Stars Steel Orchestra.
Prime Minister Keith Rowley headed a number of politicians and members of the diplomatic corps and corporate T&T in attending the event.
Seen in attendance were House Speaker Bridgid Annisette-George, Minister of Community Development, Culture and the Arts Nyan Gadsby-Dolly, former government minister Eddie Hart, HDC chairman Newman George, Massy president and group CEO Gervase Warner and Shell VP Derek Hudson.
All Stars’ musical director Deryk Nurse was joined by guest conductors Kygel Benjamin, June Nathaniel, Jessel Murray, Sule Sampson and Dr Mia Gormandy.
Beside a riveting and enthralling performance by All Stars, guest appearances were also made by Sheldon Reid, Eleanor Ryan, Rahel Moore, UWI Arts Chorale and Dane Gulston.
