Colina Insurance Limited is a primary sponsor of the Nassau Music Society again this year.
The Nassau Music Society launched its 51st season on October 25 with a brass extravaganza at Baha Mar. This season’s lineup includes concerts by an eclectic variety of musicians from The Bahamas and around the world, playing a number of genres from classical to contemporary.
In the coming months, the Nassau Music Society will host performances at different venues across the island. The featured artists will also conduct a number of workshops for primary and high school students. The season will conclude with a grand finale performance at St. Paul The Apostle Catholic Church hall on March 29, 2020.
“I am ecstatic about Colina’s enduring partnership with the Nassau Music Society,” said Maxine Seymour, director, corporate communications at Colina Insurance Limited.
“The society uses music as a tool to positively impact youth in our country who may otherwise not be exposed to world-class performances by esteemed artists,” Seymour asserted.
“In addition to its ongoing educational and outreach work, we were particularly impressed by the society’s Music Matters fundraising initiative, launched in the wake of Hurricane Dorian to help rebuild music education programs in Abaco and Grand Bahama,” concluded Seymour.
Colina prides itself in its corporate stewardship and this partnership is one of many examples of the company’s commitment to the Bahamian public.
“We have an excellent concert series planned plus bigger and better outreach initiatives in the pipeline, focused on bringing music and educational programming to a greater number of children and students,” said Cynthia Van Wynen, executive director, the Nassau Music Society.
“The Nassau Music Society is very grateful to Colina for its generous sponsorship over the years. We would not be able to do what we do without Colina’s support,” Wynen continued.
Colina Insurance Limited is a wholly-owned life and health insurer that has evolved over 155 years to become the country’s largest life and health insurer, with a solid reputation for providing insurance and related financial services products that help clients prepare for life’s unexpected events.
The Nassau Music Society is a non-profit, charitable organization founded in 1968 by the late Clement E. Bethel, a champion of the arts and an icon of Bahamian culture. During the last 51 years, the society has presented an annual world-class concert series, offered free master classes by visiting artists, run student enrichment and outreach programs and provided financial assistance to Bahamian music students studying abroad or at the University of The Bahamas.
The Nassau Music Society has an exciting and diverse range of concerts and events planned, from a brass duo to a Bahamian showcase, a second annual fundraiser featuring a piano soloist and a chamber ensemble. On the education and student enrichment side, it is planning two separate children’s concerts (one for primary schools and the other for high schools) as well as performance seminars and workshops to include a greater number of students. Its visiting artists will also conduct master classes and the society will continue the student enrichment program, where students attend its Sunday concerts for free.
