The Ivanna Eudora Kean High School Music Department would like to formally thank David Edgecombe of the Reichhold Center for the Arts and the Birch Forum for bringing Ms. Denyce Graves to the Reichhold Center for the Arts. We are grateful to them for the opportunity to witness such a magnificent performance.
We also appreciate the contribution of the complimentary tickets. Thanks to them, Banco Popular, Chase Manhattan Bank and Diamonds International, 26 of my piano and voice students had the opportunity to witness Ms. Graves in concert. It was truly a superb performance.
Initially several of my students were reluctant to attend when they heard that the artist was an opera singer. However, after attending the concert and experiencing Ms. Graves' performance, they admitted that they were pleasantly surprised that they really enjoyed it. They were so impressed and inspired that now they want to witness a real live opera production.
Their appreciation of Ms. Graves'performance is an excellent example of how students' exposure to the fine and performing arts can cultivate a strong appreciation of the arts.
We do hope that these groups will continue to enrich the cultural life of the Virgin Islands by presenting many more outstanding performances. Thanks again for the support and contribution.
