Composer pushing musical education


Share post:

ACCLAIMED BRITISH music composer and theatrical producer  Lord Andrew Lloyd- Webber has expressed a desire to see musical education of children being part of the agenda of a restored Carnegie Library.

The historic building on Coleridge Street, The City, which served as the Public Library for many years, is a part of Barbados’ built heritage now under consideration for restoration and for which fundraising is being spearheaded by the private Preservation (Barbados) Foundation Trust.

Several potential benefactors of the project were guests at a fundraising reception at Limegrove Lifestyle Centre last Saturday night when Lord Lloyd-Webber again pledged his support for the foundation to which he has lent his patronage.

He suggested ideas should be explored to see how the library could be used so children could benefit from education in music, one of his passions.
