Another successful Music on the Menu

The last in the current series of Music on the Menu events took place on Thursday, 23 May, at Luca on West Bay Road.  

The occasional dinner series brings together classical music lovers for a relaxed evening of live musical entertainment followed by a three course dinner.  

The event, which sold out well in advance, featured Glen Inanga on the piano and resident soprano Georgina Gatto. Ms Gatto designed the musical programme herself, choosing a number of well known operatic numbers, which showcased the breadth of her musical repertoire. 

Ms Gatto, accompanied by Mr. Inanga, sung in English, Spanish, German, Italian and French, performing a range of pieces from classical to contemporary. Mr. Inanga, a renowned pianist and passionate supporter of the arts, also played a couple of solo preludes by Rachmaninov, prior to dinner being served.  

Cayman Arts Festival, which organises Music on the Menu, announced that SteppingStones had agreed to sponsor the dinner series for another year.  

Although a not for profit organisation, the Cayman Arts Festival supports the Cayman Youth Choir and announced at the recent Music on the Menu event that it was also planning to provide musical instruments and resources to government schools that lack them. They will also be raising funds over the coming months in order to be able to award a talented young musician a scholarship to attend a music camp in the United States.
