Performing in a grand finale at Pedro Castle Saturday next week (18 February) will be local dance and music students coached by Founder/Artistic Director of New London Children's Choir, Mr. Ronald Corp OBE, and Founder/Artistic Director of Stella Maris Dance Ensemble, Jamaica and adjunct lecturer at UCCI, Dr. Monika Lawrence.

During the day, the performers work with and perform for school children.
