Donnell Best, a 20-year-old graduate of TAMCC, was recently accepted by the Berklee College of Music in Boston USA. Donnell is the first Grenadian violinist to be accepted by a world class music school.
Berklee is famous for producing more Grammy winners than any other music school, and for having more graduates work in the music field.
The application and audition process is highly competitive. Donnell will study every aspect of music, from technique to performance to sound technology.
Donnell has studied violin and voice in Grenada for the past 5 years. He is the teaching assistant for Island Violin Studio in Sans Souci. He plays professionally with various groups at the National Stadium, Spice Basket, hotels, restaurants and weddings.
Several weeks ago, he earned the title of People’s Choice at Grenada’s Best Talent competition.
There will be a send-off show, “D. Best of Friends”, for Donnell on Friday (June 29) at the Spice Basket at 8.00 p.m. to raise funds for his tuition.
The show will highlight Donnell’s fabulous violin and voice talents in many configurations, and will feature top local musicans such as Aiden Slinger, Cecil Bartholomew and Ketura George, winner of Grenada’s Best Talent, who will bring members of the Police Band with her.
There will be pan music, East Indian music, and dancers in what promises to be a highly entertaining evening. Advance tickets are $30. Please call 420-2825 for more information.
