Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre has urged jazz patrons to have a safe and enjoyable jazz weekend, asserting that the Saint Lucia Jazz & Arts Festival has been a ‘resounding success.’
“Your enthusiasm, participation, and encouragement for the return of the Saint Lucia Jazz & Arts Festival have truly made the event a resounding success thus far,” Pierre wrote on Facebook.
And he explained that his administration believes the people should be at the core of its policies.
“We will continue to nurture activities like these to create more economic opportunities for you, the people,” Pierre declared.
“Our policy is bringing things to the people,” he observed during an interview on May 5th on the sidelines of the official launch of the Saint Lucia Jazz and Arts Festival at the Mindoo Phillip Park in Castries.
The event culminates on Sunday at Pigeon Island National Landmark with a show called ‘The Ultimate Celebration.’
It will feature Sting and Shaggy, Ronald Boo Hinkson, Barbara Cadet, Teddyson John Project, and Irvin Ace Loctar.
