Singers returning to Cayman for cancer fundraiser

Steve Higgins & Friends will be performing at the Marriott on Sunday, 1 Sept.

For the fourth consecutive year, Steve Higgins & Friends will present an annual ‘Evening of Excellence’ concert to help raise funds for the Lions Club of Tropical Gardens and the Cayman Islands Cancer Society.

Last year, the singers raised more than $7,000 for those organisations.

The concert, on Sunday, 1 Sept. at the Marriott Beach Resort, will feature tenor Steve Higgins, lyric soprano Dahlia Wynter, mezzo-soprano April Marr and creative dancer Amaya Lewis.

The theme of this year’s concert is ‘Music of the Heart’.

Jamaica’s Consul General Oliver Mair, himself a performer, will give a brief address at the concert, organisers said in a press release.

“I am thrilled to be visiting the Cayman Islands and to lend support to the Steve Higgins & Friends’ outreach and contribution to the international community,” said Mair, who will be making his first trip to the island in his official capacity.

Steve Higgins & Friends started their 2019 concert series in Fort Lauderdale in July. After Grand Cayman, they will appear in Atlanta, Georgia; Miami, Florida; New York and the United Kingdom.

Sunday’s concert will feature music ranging from romantic to classical to Broadway, from jazz to ballads to island.

Tickets are $25 and are on sale at Funky Tang’s, Superstitch, from Lions Club of Tropical Gardens members or call 916-5008 or 925-9134.
