A season to behold

The curtain came down Saturday on what was dubbed a fantastic Holders Season 2011. The Gala Night, as it was billed, lived up to expectations as patrons were treated to an amazing mix of music of every type. The first of two headline acts, Stringfever, kept the audience on the edge of their seats with their truly astonishing, witty and imaginative display of music.  The other headline act Alfreda Burke and Rodrick Dixon took the audience on an emotional and musical journey from opera and Broadway to Negro spirituals and popular music. The unofficial Holders Choir made up of patrons, later joined the duo in singing He’s Got The Whole World In His Hands, which added a special touch to their set.  Burke and Dixon ended the night on a high as the audience again waved and sang along to the final selection Seasons Of Love. (RP)Also performing on the night were G Syndicate and the Lowrey Leon Worrell All Star Band. (RP)
