No Comments

Jamaican classical composer Peter Ashbourne reconstructed May's Tivoli Gardens, West Kingston incursion at a recent International Chamber Music soiree recently.

Mr. Asbourne used instruments to create music that replaced the sounds of violence using musicians from Jamaica, Japan, Colombia, Israel and many other countries.

Although the music and the performances by the soloist became more mournful with each interpretation, the audience was captivated by the story being told.

The compositions were written and dedicated to persons who died in May 2010 in Tivoli.

The concert was organised by Music Unites! — Jamaica Arts Endowment Fund and the International Proxy Parents.
