NASSAU, Bahamas (March 24, 2015) – The Bahamas National Youth Choir is singing a different tune following a donation from a local law firm.

Sharon Wilson & Co. on Monday donated $5,000 to the choir.

The firm has been a platinum sponsor for the last five years and has, to date, donated $25,000 to the BNYC.

Principal of Sharon Wilson & Co., Sharon Wilson said she was pleased that the firm was able to make its contribution to the choir’s annual performance, particularly on its 25th repertory season.

“Through the Bahamas National Youth Choir, Cleophas Adderley and others have given so much over the years in the development of the voices, poise and discipline of so many of our youth,” said Mrs. Wilson.

“The National Youth Choir is truly a national asset of which we can all be proud. No doubt it takes the wider support and appreciation of our community to continue this excellent work.”

The BNYC was founded in 1983 and its members have sung in dozens of languages in more than 20 countries around the globe. It has even performed for Her Majesty the Queen.

The choir celebrates its 25th repertory season at the Dundas Centre for the Performing Arts starting March 25-28. Tickets are $20.

The gala performance takes place March 25 at 8:00 p.m. and is preceded by a cocktail reception starting at 7:15 p.m. Tickets cost $60 per person.
