Youngsters compete for musical accolade

| 30/05/2011

(CNS): One of the Cayman Islands’ talented young musicians will be singled out this weekend with the fourth annual young musician of the year award at the Harquail Theatre on Saturday evening. A production of the National Children’s Festival of the Arts and sponsored by Butterfield, the award, organisers said, not only recognises excellence in music but aims to give competitors a platform to showcase musical talent. In addition to awarding the young musician of the year, this year’s event will also feature cash prizes for the first and second runners up as well. Performances start at 7pm and the event is open to the public with free admission.

“Arts and cultural programmes bring together community members in a positive way by sharing the talents of diverse groups, by supporting the development of individual artists and by giving the public a greater appreciation of different cultural perspectives around them,” said Sheree Ebanks, a director at Butterfield. “Supporting the development and aspirations of young people is important to us, and we are excited once again to sponsor the Young Musician of the Year.”
