NIFCA gold bonanza at Ilaro Court
THERE WERE 41 golden moments Friday night as that number of gold awards were given out across seven broad disciplines of the National Independence Festival Of Creative Arts.
Thirty-one awardees were recognised for their outstanding entries in drama, dance, music, literary arts, fine arts and craft, culinary arts and photography.
There were also 17 incentive awards along with 30 special honorary awards, the Prime Minister’s Award for originality and the Prime Minister’s scholarship award.
Topping the list was Coleridge & Parry School’s choirmaster Marlon Legall, who walked away with the prestigious Scholarship Award for tertiary studies valued at $35 000.
Members of the choir also collected two gold and three incentive awards for their renditions and performances of Day-O and Happy Birthday Barbados, the latter an original piece written and composed by Legall. (NS)
