(CMR) Every other year, a chorus of voices rises around the world to mark World Hospice and Palliative Care Day. This October 13th, Jasmine invites you to join them in celebrating the life-changing impact of palliative care with Voices for Hospices.
This intimate concert, which will be held at John Gray Auditorium, will feature talented performers as they showcase an eclectic mix of Broadway anthems, jazz standards, and new music, featuring hits from shows such as Wicked, Sunset Boulevard, Funny Girl, and Hairspray.
Voices for Hospices came to life under the creative helm of classically trained singer and instrumentalist Arek Nicholson, who has been involved with Jasmine’s Spotlight productions for the last ten years.
When asked about the production, Nicholson said, “When I was asked to assume the role of Artistic Director for Voices for Hospices, I accepted with feelings of trepidation and excitement. The production will feature a small but mighty group of incredibly talented singers performing in recital style and aspiring dancers from UCCI. The result is an eclectic showcase with recognizable anthems that range from Funny Girl to Carmina Burana.”
Created in 2010 under the leadership of Dr. MoniKa Lawrence, Associate Professor, and Artistic Director for the UCCI Performing Arts, the UCCI Dancers have been making an impact on an ever-widening audience both in the local community and internationally at various festivals and cultural events in Trinidad, Barbados, and Jamaica.
This one-night-only performance is expected to be a night to remember. Tickets are limited, so do not miss your chance to witness the exceptional talent on stage while celebrating the significance of palliative and hospice care in the Cayman Islands. All ticket sales from Voices for Hospices will help Jasmine support families struggling with a serious illness. Jasmine is the only organization in the Cayman Islands that provides free palliative and end-of-life care.
