The Cayman National Choir and Cayman National Orchestra, as their last concert of 2016, will perform an evening of sacred music on Thursday.
The concert will take place at the Marriott resort ballroom from 7:30-9 p.m.
Sue Horrocks, musical director of the choir since 1998, will direct a selection of “Ave Maria” pieces by a variety of composers. The program will feature solos by soprano Georgina Gatto and tenor Arek Nicholson.
Ms. Gatto, who has been singing since she was a child, performs a repertoire of pop and classical music. She lives in Cayman with her husband, Dr. Howard Deosaran, founder and medical director of TrinCay Medical Centre and Urgent Care, and their children.
Mr. Nicholson, a resident of West Bay and a longtime member of the choir, teaches music at John Gray High School.
Ms. Horrocks is the head of the Junior School at Cayman Prep and High School. She has been involved in more than 30 productions with the Cayman Drama Society as a musician, actor and director.
The 50-member Cayman National Choir is a mixed-voice choir of Caymanians and expatriates. The ensemble has been performing for almost 40 years with the goal of preserving Caymanian musical heritage.
