Birdsong campers show off skills

TT – There was a sense of pride, joy and achievement among the participants of the Birdsong Academy’s Music Vacation Camp closing concert on Saturday evening at Queen’s Hall in St Anns.

This was the 16th edition of the closing concert where over 100 students participated in voice, brass, guitar, steelpan and percussion.

The theme of this year’s concert was Resilience and according to director Dennis Phillip, “At the camp the focus was on building resilience. We tried to impart to the children the lesson that resilience is all about the choices they make after the inevitable setbacks and disappointments faced on life’s journey.

“The maxim for the closing concert is lighting a spark of resilience to blaze into a flame of musical excellence.”
