Reports have reached Nation News that renowned theatre practitioner Clairmonte Taitt has passed away.

In posts circulating on social media today, people expressed condolences to Taitt’s family.

Taitt, who was born in Guyana to a Barbadian father and Guyanese mother, was widely recognised for his work in theatre arts and has received awards, including the Earl Warner Trust’s Lifetime Achievement Awards.

In 2014, Warner’s daughter Zara described Taitt as 
“a continental son”, and also cited his work with 
the Philharmonic Orchestra in Guyana
 as a prize-winning tenor and choirmaster, and as a BBC-trained broadcaster with Radio Demerara, Radio St Lucia as programme director,
 and the Caribbean Broadcasting Corporation as announcer/producer.

Taitt, whose career in drama spanned more than half a century, was an actor, director, vocalist, violinist and broadcaster.
