ANNUAL fund-raising concert, Classics in June, is scheduled for the Church of the Ascension in Mona, St Andrew, on Sunday.

The event, now in its 14th year, is a major fundraiser for Soroptimist International of Jamaica, Kingston and a number of institutions working with children — including National Children's Home and the Shortwood Early Childhood Development Centre.

Classics in June 2018 is being held under the patronage of the French Ambassador to Jamaica, His Excellency Monsieur Jean Michel Despax and Madame Line Despax.

Laurice Barnaby, chair of the organising committee, is promising a memorable evening.

“It'll be an evening of amazing music... very high standard, and it's for a good cause. It's also an opportunity for dads to enjoy Father's Day,” Barnaby told the Jamaica Observer.

The guitar, steel pan, violin, oboe and flute are some of the instruments that will take centre stage.

“We'll have solo pan playing classical music,” she said.

Performers this year will include Dr David Aarons on steel pan, Dr Althea Neblett on oboe, Shawn Richards on guitar, Gabriel Walters on violin, and Stephen Shaw-Naar on piano. Featured vocalists will be Dawn Fuller-Phillips, Rosette Salazar, and Santorini Degli Archangeli.

Classics in June has become a well-established and much-anticipated music event on the local entertainment calendar. The concert has over the years, promoted established and up-and-coming music performers in Jamaica.
