Classical music lovers were treated to the latest Music on the Menu series, presented by the Cayman Arts Festival at the Marriott Hotel Ballroom on May 25.
Featuring pianist Glen Inanga, the concert appealed to all music lovers. Mr Inanga played Claude Debussy’s Pour le piano Modest Mussorgsky and Pictures at an Exhibition by Frédéric Chopin – Fantasy in F Minor Op.49.
Guests were welcomed with canapés and drinks. All proceeds will go towards the Cayman Arts Festival Scholarship Programme.
Originally formed as a three-day festival, Cayman Arts Festival has evolved into an organisation that produces monthly events that bring cultural experiences to the Cayman Islands and support their educational programme for young people.
All proceeds from CAF events fund their youth education programme which provides musical instruments to kids, organises workshops with visiting artists and coordinates musical lessons at local schools.
Incorporated in 2003 by Mr Inanga and Jennifer Micallef – both world-renowned concert pianists – and Sharon Roulstone, a Caymanian attorney, the festival is committed to its belief that education is among its core purposes.
All the visiting artists conduct workshops, master classes or concert demonstrations for the educational benefit of Cayman’s youth. Since 2004, more than 1,600 students have attended workshops or master classes with CAF hosted talent.
