Music for Haiti at Pedro

 Young musicians will put on a
special show for Haitian orphans next week at Pedro Castle.

Music for Orphans takes place on
Thursday 11 March. The evening of music kicks off at 6.30pm, with tickets
including a beverage and hors d’oeuvres from Ristorante Pappagallo. It is perfect
for an after-work interlude and not too late for early bedtimes.

The funds raised from ticket sales
and donations will go to God’s Littlest Angels, a non-profit Christian ministry
that runs a Haitian orphanage. Operating since 1994 it organises international
adoptions and helps more than 200 children attend school through its school
sponsorship programme.

“It’s an opportunity for students
to do something for children by partnering with a specific charity,” said
organiser and music teacher Louise Price.

“The evening will feature 22
soloists and 14 ensembles, we have so many talented young musicians here, and
it is a great opportunity for them to have a chance to perform while doing good
for other children.”

She said the hope is that the event
while raising funds will be a showcase for younger players to watch older
performers who can inspire them.

Along with performances from
musicians aged 7 to 17 including 2008 Young Musician of the Year Michael Testori,
and Rising Stars Melanie Ebanks, Chantal Martin, Francella Martin, Kenroy
Millwood, Beneil Miller and Zoey Robinson.

The evening will also feature a
short performance from local concert pianist Glen Inanga, and music from local
band Undiscovered.

“It’s a children’s event, it is so
nice to see something positive coming out of our youth,” said Ms Price.

“It’s all about the children, both
here and in Haiti.” 

Tickets are
$50 and $30 for children 12 and younger.For more information call 926-6660. Visit for
