We hunger after His righteousness

Now when He saw the crowds, He went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to Him, and he began to teach them, saying: “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. [Matthew 5:1-6] “Oh Lord, it’s so hard to be humble when you are perfect in every way.” That is the title of a song written by Mac Davis. So many of us think like that.

Tickets are $75 and $25 respectively. This year's concerts are held under the Patronage of His Excellency Sir Arthur Foulkes, Governor General of The Bahamas, and Joan Lady Foulkes. This year’s Theme is “Let there Be Peace on Earth”. The Bel Canto Singers are pleased to welcome a string quintet from the world renowned Peabody Conservatory of Music of the Johns Hopkins University in Maryland. In keeping with this year’s theme, several community support groups will display at this year’s Gala – giving gala patrons an opportunity to donate time and or funds to their worthy causes: The Crisis Centre and BASH This year’s concert is filled with wonderful musical arrangements of some of the world favorite Christmas Carols. The string arrangements add warmth to the concert that reminds us of all that is good about this time of year. Mr. McPhee comments… “For the past six years, I have been realizing my vision: to work with individuals, through musical productions, to have an impact on the lives of our members thereby impacting their communities. The mark of a good leader is one who is disciplined; and after having studied music for some 35 years, I know that talent and discipline create success. This formula is not unique to music.” International performing artist Lee B. Callender, pianist and piano/vocal coach said, “Bel Canto exemplifies its Italian name, “beautiful singing” at its best. This group with its rich, full-bodied expressive sound is a delight to the ear. An exhilarating, captivating listening experience.” Bel Canto Singers, through its annual production of Christmastide has raised more than $57,000 net for charities including The AIDS Foundation over the past six yuletide seasons. Mr. McPhee further comments… “I have seen BCS members grow as musicians as well as husbands, wives, partner,s and parents. More importantly, I have seen members of this group come to learn and to understand what it means to become points of light in their workplaces, churches, civic organizations, and at play.” Bel Canto completed its first international concert, which was held in Columbia, South Carolina, on April 27th, 2008. Dr. Sandra Teel, Minister of Music at St. Simon and St. Jude Episcopal Church said, “It was a marvelous pleasure to welcome such a professional, talented group to perform for us. The breadth of repertoire was fantastic – from Broadway to the stairway to heaven. How wonderful! And I’m looking forward to our next (and annual) event!” Another patron said, “The sound of the group was unparalleled. I could hardly believe my ears – so few voices, such a powerful sound.” For tickets or further information, please write us at info@belcantosingersbahamas.com or call us at 242.431.6440 Click HERE to view artist profiles.

Bahamians have much to be thankful for

SPEAKING at a ceremony to celebrate universal children's day -- held at the Church of God of Prophecy, East Street - Education Minister Desmond Bannister reminded Bahamian students of their good fortune.

He also reminded them of how much --in that forward motion called progress -- had been left behind, especially that gentle, courteous nature that marked Bahamians as a people apart.

"When I was growing up good manners was not something you chose to have, but something that you were compelled to learn and were happy to actively practice," Mr Bannister said.

In those days -- and even before Mr Bannister's time -- a curse word was not something that was tolerated from the lips of ...
