Tickets for Marionettes anniversary show on sale
The Marionettes Chorale will commemorate T&T’s 50th anniversary with its second offering of A Gift to the Nation II on July 14 and 15 at Queen’s Hall, St Ann’s. The programme will feature the Caribbean premiere of Karl Jenkins’ new contemporary classic, The Armed Man (A Mass for Peace).
A statement from the choir’s artistic director Caroline Taylor said, “This multi-media and multi-cultural work—commissioned for the UK’s Millennium celebrations—is particularly distinctive for its inclusion of multicultural literary, musical and visual elements, including a film developed exclusively for the work.
“Complementing this one-hour work is a showcase of some of our nation’s most talented young people, as the group’s Music Festival winners—including members of the Marionettes’ new, 50-strong children’s Choir—take centre stage with their winning performances.” There will also be a tribute to R&B singer Whitney Houston, who died earlier this year.
Tickets for the shows go on sale today at $150 and $200, with discounts for students, and are available from the Marionettes and at Queen’s Hall box office. Partnering with the Marionettes on this production will be Enrique Ali, Jane Carter, Leslie Clement, Desmond Waithe, Margaret Sheppard, Noble Douglas, Dave Williams, Randy Halfhide, Celia Wells and Franklin Agarrat. Proceeds from the shows go toward the Marionettes Property Fund, and the construction of Helios Hall, a secure rehearsal, storage and performance space for the group that it hopes to share with the national artistic community.
