‘Believe- Once Upon a Star’ Christmas concert is on at Queen’s Hall December 2–5.
This year’s production will celebrate the Christmas star, according to a release from the producers. “The star was all of nature conspiring to guide those wise men to the Christ child. The courage that those men demonstrated in following that star teaches us that life rises up to meet me when we choose to trust it. Our hope this year is that the joy of Christmas can inspire us to be brave enough to trust life during these trying times.”
There will be performances by Denyse Plummer, Alicia Jaggasar, Cecilia Salazar, LA Rose, The St Hilaire Brothers, Charlie Griffith, ‘D Piano girl’ Johanna Chuckaree, Curtis Jordan, Mahalia Pierre, Aurora Tardieu, Clarice Beeput, Justine Zephyrine, Victoria Griffith, Nakita Gadsby, Chelsea Fensom (cellist), Adrian Jaikaran (steel pannist) and John Thomas.
The supporting cast include St Joseph’s Convent Choir, The Eastern Chorale, and the Karline Brathwaite Dancers.
The Denyse Plummer Foundation was to be launched on the opening night. “The Foundation has been working tirelessly to improve the lives of the underprivileged here and abroad. There will be a toy drive so patrons are asked to kindly bring wrapped toys to the show, indicating boy or girl and age range.”
The release said plans were also made for a Believe Christmas market this year by Alison Lee Loy. On sale: delicious treats, ‘Believe’ merchandise, jewellery, and Christmas décor from up to two hours before the show.
The concert hall will be sanitised daily, and patrons are reminded to walk with their vaccination cards as the Hall is a safe zone.
