International Music Festival of Jamaica begins this month end
The organisers of the Orrett Rhoden International Music Festival say they are aiming "to bring classical music alive" in Jamaica with their annual concert series in Kingston and Westmoreland.
The event is being held under the distinguished patronage of Governor General Sir Patrick and Lady Allen and His Excellency Vladimir Polenov, ambassador of the Russian Federation to Jamaica.
Each year's programme will be presented to Jamaicans as well as to visitors to the island in search of a tropical destination with a little extra to offer as complement to the traditional sand, sea and sun.
Annual festival performances will not only take place in Jamaica, but will also tour the home country of the featured composer that year, followed by a gala concert at Carnegie Hall in New York.
This month, four concerts will be presented in Jamaica. The first will take place at the University of the West Indies (UWI) Chapel, Mona, on the 24th, followed by two lunch-hour concerts at the Mountambrin Theatre Gallery in Caledonia district, Westmoreland, on the 26th and 27th.
The final concert on December 1 will again take place at the UWI Chapel.
On the 24th and 26th, music lovers are in for an epic programme of music by this year's featured composers from Russia: Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky, Sergei Rachmaninoff, Alexander Scriabin and Dimitri Shostakovich; with other works by Swedish composers Johan Helmich Roman and Elfrida Andree, Greek composer Yannis Constantinidis, and French composer Olivier Messiaen.
Also included in these two performances are concert favourites by J.S. Bach, Franz Schubert, Ludwig van Beethoven, and Frederic Chopin and a special performance of Canadian composer Dr Virginia-Gene Rittenhouse's Jamaican Suite for Violin and Piano.
Performing in this magnificent musical maypole are concert pianists, Oskar Ekberg from Sweden; Greek-American 'Beethoven High Priest' Louis Orphanos; Orrett Rhoden from Jamaica, and concert violinist Preston Hawes, from Canada.
Making their first special guest appearance on November 27 and December 1 is the famed trio DEORO, led by the great American cellist Dave Eggar. Also in the line-up are Rita Coore, Jamaican concert pianist, Paul Shaw; as well as the celebrated musical ambassador of Jamaica and member of Third World band, Stephen 'Cat' Coore on cello and guitar.
Two young and exciting Jamaican artistes will also be on show.
Soprano, Filicia Morrison-Williams, who, without question, is Jamaica's greatest new discovery; and songwriter-tenor, Marcel Rhoden who premiers his first classical reggae composition for voice and grand piano.
The concerts will begin with a debut performance of hypnotic African drumming by The Akwaaba Drummers while Orrett Rhoden will appear throughout the programme as accompanist and in extemporisations with DEORO and Stephen 'Cat' Coore.
Tickets went on sale last Monday at The Music Mart, 8 South Avenue, Kingston 10; and at Vista Eye Clinic, 120 Great George's Street, Savanna-la-Mar, Westmoreland.
Concerts on 24th November and 1st December will be live streamed on Both concerts begin at 6 p.m.
