M&C Supports Youth Orchestra

Continuing its tradition of supporting the Arts, M&C Group of Companies was pleased to present the Anse La Raye Charles Cadet Youth Orchestra, represented by Mr Gregory Piper, the orchestra’s leader/conductor, with a donation of $2,500. This gift will help defray expenses associated with replacing and repairing of instruments for the orchestra and will assist this group of talented, young musicians in their pursuit of excellence.

The orchestra was established over three years ago and consists of 30 musicians, all of whom are residents of Anse La Raye, ranging in age from 10 to 25 years. Through their involvement in the orchestra, these young musicians have enhanced their skills and some have even been afforded the opportunity to enter into the workforce.

Mr Piper was extremely grateful for the donation, declaring, “The Anse La Raye Charles Cadet Youth Orchestra is not presently funded and therefore donations like this one from M&C help to ensure that the programme can continue.” He acknowledged that M&C has always been willing to assist with various initiatives.

Mrs Marella Devaux, Group Marketing Manager, remarked that M&C Group of Companies admires the commitment of Mr Piper with this initiative. She wished him and the talented members of the Anse La Raye Charles Cadet Youth Orchestra continued success in their endeavours.
