The Convent High School (CHS) is gearing up to host the first Jazz N’ Creole Fringe event dubbed “Sip on Songs”.

The exciting event presented by the UMOJA CHS Speech Chorale Sign Language Club & Choir, will take place on the CHS grounds on Saturday, April 27, from 3:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

“Just inspired by the fact that many young people, students, have never gotten the chance to go to Jazz N’ Creole and it is almost difficult for some of their parents to take them themselves for various reasons, cost included,” Educator at the Convent High School and Director of UMOJA CHS, Leandra Lander said while addressing the weekly Jazz N’ Creole press conference on Wednesday. “So, we decided to bring a little Jazz N’ Creole to our school so that students of different backgrounds can have a taste of what an event like that feels like.”

She continued, “And not just to experience it, but be part of it as a performer.”

Lander explained that the line-up is family-oriented, not just for people to attend, “but our cast of performers are family members of the Convent High School.”

Performances are expected from Tasha P, Janae Jackson, Carlyn XP, Michele Henderson, Marie Pascale, and Shanice, among others.

Lander revealed that there will also be a performance by a surprise guest artiste from the region.

“She has agreed and sponsored her time and her talent,” Lander added. “We cannot disclose yet, but as soon as we can confirm the different arrangements, we will of course let the public know.”

Meanwhile, she said at the event there will be a massage station, fashion displays, various products on sale, and a glam station to name a few.

The event is open to the general public.

Tickets cost $30 for adults, and $20 for students and are available at the school’s office and Steddies  in Roseau on Kings Lane.

    “Lander revealed that there will also be a performance by a surprise guest artiste from the region…”

    Is it too much to hope that this will be one of the best female jazz singers in the Caribbean. That being, Convent High School past pupil and Dominica’s own, Barbara Bully.
