Rotary Grenada’s Carols by Candlelight, which will be held on December 4 at Quarantine Point, is expected to be quite a spectacular show, satisfying, at minimum, the expectations set last year.
This year’s concert theme is based on Motown Christmas music genre and boasts a star-studded performance line up of talented Grenadian vocalists, musicians and dancers, brought together just for this occasion.
Multiple award-winning producer and director, Richardo Keens-Douglas, MBE would direct the production.
According to Executive Producer, Richard Strachan, a past president of the Rotary Club, “Richardo brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in musical productions. We guarantee an exceptional show featuring some of Grenada’s leading talents”.
Richardo Keens-Douglas’ infamous story, The Nutmeg Princess – Grenada’s first fairy-tale – was adapted into a musical for the stage. It won the DORA Award, Canada’s Highest Theatre Award, for Most Outstanding Musical in 1999.
He is no stranger to the Grenada stage and has directed and produced the Carriacou Maroon Festival, Tourism Expo, National Carnival Queens shows, Panorama shows, Dimanche Gras, Kiddies Carnival and The Cultural Fiesta for independence in Grenville to name a few.
On stage would be some of Grenada’s best male vocalists including, Gospel Challenge finalist, Jeverson Ramirez; winner of Grenada’s Best Talent, Jonathan Francis; Best Contemporary Male Vocalist, Jonathan James; BET Talent Search finalist, Kellon Brathwaite and singing sensation, Dennison Andrew.
The fairer sex won’t be outdone with the likes of Soul, Jazz and Blues singer, Jenny J; R&B singer Kamela Stephens; Soprano Lisa Mc Donald; Thamara St. Bernard who opens shows for many international singers; as well as singer/songwriter, Tammy Baldeo.
Soul Deep, the band known for backing the British Collective at the Pure Grenada Music Festival and who performed with Ronald ” Boo” Hinkson will be the stage band.
Patrons can look out for a remarkable open air concert and fun activities for the entire family.
