St. Maarten – Minister of Education, Culture, Youth and Sports Silveria Jacobs attended last Thursday’s Musical Showcase organized by music teachers Rosemary Marsham-Hodge, Bobby Vlaun and Marva Richardson. The event at the Philipsburg Community and Cultural Center was for cycle 2 students.
Ten students from Oranje, M. Genevieve de Weever and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. were chosen to form the United Choir and Ensemble which was the featured act of the event. They were led by Rosemary Marsham-Hodge and sang an array of medleys highlighting their melodious voices and culminating in the jazz number “Jitterbug.” Bobby Vlaun’s
Music Ensemble of recorder players featured solos and marvelously timed Caribbean classics and Marva Richardson led the guest choirs from Ruby Labega and Charles L. Bell School. There was also a top notch group of five drummers that was well received and several guest acts from the other public schools such as dancers, soloists, drummers and “Lil Paben” who did a dramatic dance a la Paben.
The organizers held the showcase in three one-hour sessions to accommodate the schools to be able to enjoy the showcase. Director of Public Education Glenderlin Davis-Holiday thanked the teachers for their collaborative efforts in decorating the cultural center and Jacobs was in awe of the professional presentations of the students pledged to work hard on exploring, developing and showcasing the talents of more students.
