The Alpha School of Music's 2023 Christmas Festival struck a triumphant chord December 14th inside the Alpha Courtyard.
For the third time in the Alpha School of Music history, friends and family of the Alpha community enjoyed high energy, festive vibes and joyous music by ensembles from the Alpha School of Music, Alpha Vocational Training Centre and the Alpha Community Band. Patrons were on their feet and dancing to a wide range of performance styles include ska, reggae, pop, jazz, concert band and Parang. A huge and grateful thank you to Caribshopper.com, Digicel Foundation, Jamaica Nice. and Mercy Education for their generous support.
