The students of St Mary’s College are embarking for a second year on their Christmas production, ‘Christmas with the Saints 2’. The concert takes place at the school’s Centenary Hall on Saturday at 7.30 p.m.
This event is organised by Form Six students and will serve as a night of entertainment for the parents, teachers and students of St Mary’s College, and to the wider public who wish to enjoy a Saturday night of music and performance.
The concert brings out the best of the school’s present talent, including award-winning calypsonians Desle Julien, Duane O’Connor, Renaldo Alleyne-Noreiga and Reshawn Goodridge. The event also incorporates the talents of past students like vocalist, Jake Salloum and instrumentalist, Luke Walker.
Besides solo performers like these, audience members can expect to be wowed by the school’s parang side Los Santos, which placed third in the secondary school category at the 2017 National Junior Parang Competition.
The concert will similarly place emphasis on our national instrument, showcasing the college’s steel band, The Symphony of Saints, among pan soloists like Dylan Yuk Low.
Guest artistes include Los Alumnos de San Juan, The Flick, Ms Dija, Shortpants, Mastertone Salloum, 3Canal and La Nueva Experiencia.
The creative director is Jake Salloum and the musical director is Alea Jaggernauth.
Christmas delicacies (fruit cake, pastelles etc.) and drinks (sorrel, ponche de crème etc.) will be on sale.
Tickets are reasonably priced at $100, and are available at the college’s office or through Enrico Rajah at 623-8835/745-4391. All proceeds go towards recurrent expenditure and the Music Room.
