I got a phone call in January last year from the head of the EU Delegation here. I know him from a project that I was involved in Mexico where he worked at the Irish Embassy and we put together a concert of only Irish music. Since then we stayed in contact, but this idea came up when he was talking with Yvonne Cole about it and said I think I know the person who will be able to put something like this together.”This workshop is the fulfilment of a commitment by the European Union to make a contribution to Guyana’s 50th Golden Jubilee Anniversary.“We are very grateful to the European Union. This would not have been possible without their support. This is their contribution to Guyana’s 50th Independence Anniversary, so we are very thankful for that,” Tyndall added.It is expected that at the end of the workshop, local conductors will be better able to execute the duties of their position which will result in better performances.The two maestros have been to several countries, facilitating orchestral conducting sessions.last_img read more

Antonio Conte reportedly wanted to take Lukaku on a two-year loan deal for a fee of £9million, with an obligation to buy him for £53.7million in 2021.Despite this initial bid being rejected, the Italian giants are desperate to secure the services of the 26-year-old. They see him as a replacement for Mauro Icardi and are determined to land Lukaku this summer. Conte feels that he can get the best out of the striker who has not been fulfilling his potential of late. 14. Álvaro Morata (Chelsea) 12.
