Oct. 11, 2002 – When was the last time you heard songs like "Brown Girl," "Vim, Vigor & Vitality" and "Sly Mongoose" performed live? On Oct. 22, the Caribbean Chorale will present a free concert of folk songs, calypsos and popular West Indian standards at the Frederick Evangelical Lutheran Church.
The renowned V.I. choir, directed by Dr. Lois Hassell-Habtes, will perform songs composed or collected by V.I. and Caribbean music maestros including Hugo Bornn, Alton A. Adams Sr., Cyril Creque, Bill and Raymond LaMotta, Frankie Jarvis and Irving Burgie.
The Caribbean Chorale and the V.I. Cultural Heritage Institute present the concert to celebrate Arts and Humanities Month at 7 p.m.
The program is supported in part by a grant from the V.I. Council on the Arts through funds from the National Endowment for the Arts. The church provided the space at its Bethania Hall in downtown Charlotte Amalie.
