For one night only, the UWI Arts Chorale, with the UWI STeel Ensemble co-producing, will present for the first time as a choir the unique theatrical concertCry Freedom.’  The concert will take place on Wednesday March 30th, 2011 at the Daaga Auditorium on the UWI St Augustine campus, St Augustine at 7pm.

Cry Freedom is a musical offering to the multicultural diaspora that is Trinidad and Tobago, where the UWI Arts Chorale and the UWI STeel Ensemble will combine musical genres like calypso, gospel, folk and spirituals to celebrate freedom, a concept that spans racial and ethnic cultures.  

Known for their eclectic repertoire, Chorale and STeel will continue to challenge their audience with new musical sounds and ideas.  The concert promises to be an exciting one, with well-known spirituals like Wade in the Water, the Argentinian Mass Misa Criolla, and excerpts from the Tony award-winning musical Elton John and Tim Rice’s AIDA.  This highly anticipated concert is directed by the esteemed Jessel Murray and choreographed by Adele Bynoe.

Tickets are available at the Department of Creative and Festival Arts on Agostini Street, St Augustine.  For further information call 743-0841, 398-8576 or email
