UVI Concert Band Performs
|From the Anguilla Local News - Site Map.|
The Concert Band of the University of the Virgin Islands, conducted by Austin Venzen, performed before an appreciative local audience on May 31st, 1997 at the House of Chandeliers (Inter-Island Hotel). A "concert band" consists of wind, brass and percussion instruments, but no strings. The concert was sponsored by the Governer and his wife, our ALCHS high school and the Anguilla-UVI alumni association. The band members travelled to Anguilla from St. Thomas to raise money for a new concert band at the ALHCS high school.
The program included classical, spiritual and pop selections.
One of the vocal soloists with the band, Malvern Gumbs, is an Anguillian Belonger who lives in St. Thomas.
Nicole Hodge, a tall, beautiful elegant 6th form student at ALCHS
performed two solos with the band: The Impossible Dream and
Somewhere Out There. She was incredible and had the audience on their
feet applauding (see picture). The band was best on
their medley of Leroy Anderson tunes and a Big Band medley.
