Musicians putting on the Ritz

Cayman Music School hosts fundraiser

The Cayman Music School is hosting a musical concert at The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman on Thursday, 14 June in an effort to raise money to assist promising musicians with scholarships to attend the school. 

As part of the happenings, both teachers and students will feature most notable pieces from classical and modern music. 

“In spite of being a young school, CMS has made its scholarship programme one of its priorities. To recognise musical talent and offer scholarships to talented young musicians is a high priority for the institution,” said Inna Kazakova, owner of the school. She said there are eight full time scholarship recipients and two part-time recipients on scholarship at the school. 

“The annual scholarship benefit will not only give more children an opportunity to obtain scholarships but it will also allow the school to maintain those that are already in the programme,” said Mrs. Kazakova, who invited the Cayman Islands community to be a part of future musicians and the school’s success by attending the concert. The event will also feature a silent auction, a raffle and wine and food. 

Tickets will be on sale at the Cayman Music School, which is located in the Grand Pavilion, for $125. Delivery of tickets to offices can also be arranged. Those able to assist with the sale of tickets should contact the school for a booklet. 

“As you know CMS is a privately run school and as such it does cost to afford many talented and promising youngsters in the field of music with opportunities they may otherwise have to forgo,” Mrs. Kazakova said. “We are requesting that organisations kindly endorse this event, as this will greatly assist this cause and further the awareness of need for such scholarships to be supported on an annual basis.” 

Within the past few years, many children have discovered the musical talent hidden in them as a result of the programmes at CMS, with many of the youngsters going on to win multiple awards in many high level competitions, including 25 gold medals in the Children’s Festival of Arts.
