Indeed, dreams can be the tiny seeds from which tomorrow grows.

Currently in its fifth year, this community initiative, which is geared towards providing music education opportunities to community organisations, children?s homes, youth correctional institutions, police youth clubs, steelbands and schools throughout T&T, has unearthed a wealth of musical talent and potential for excellence among the various communities in T&T.

A release said this unique programme has an artist-in-residence component which creates opportunities for networking and interaction with accomplished and renowned local musicians such as Roy Cape, Pelham Goddard, Errol Ince and Leston Paul.

At the concert on October 1 at NAPA, the audience was treated to a mixture of local and international classics including popular gospel, contemporary pop and classical selections from participants.
