Although people will have to do without the popular annual National Children Festival of the Arts this year, they will be treated to a music concert to compensate, said NCFA Coordinator Stephanie Williams
‘We are planning a big concert for Thursday 21 April 2005. It will be a joint effort between the John Gray High School and Wesleyan Christian Academy, and people will have the pleasure of seeing joint concert bands and choirs in action. There will also be some individual school items,’ she said in a press release.
The concert will be held at the First Baptist Church and a small entry fee will be charged to raise recovery funds for the two schools. John Gray suffered major damage while Wesleyan Christian Academy lost its church building and some classrooms.
Mrs. Lorna Bjorklund heads John Gray’s music department and also working in the music department is Miss Nicole Barnett, a young Caymanian music graduate. Principal DeWayne Joslin leads the Wesleyan Academy’s music department, while Mrs. Renee Joslin and Mrs. Ronna Craig are also music teachers.
