Jamaica to experience Reggae in Symphony

Posted on 15th March 2008 by Reggaelifestyle

If everything goes according to plan, later this year Jamaican music lovers could be in for a very special treat with the staging of Reggae in Symphony. This, according to one of the featured acts, Freddie McGregor, who along with John Holt constitute the main attraction on the stellar event that highlight reggae’s classical ingredients.

The first of two such gala concerts, highly ranked as “an evening of elegance” is set for Sunday, April 20 at the Broward Centre for the Performing Arts, Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Started in London six years ago with the London Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Reggae in Symphony was last held in October 2007 at Brooklyn College, New York.

“We did it six years ago in London with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, and we’re going to do it in Florida now, and we’re taking it to Jamaica next. The date we’re looking at right now, tentatively is October 19,” Freddie McGregor told Splash.

Response to.. Jamaica to experience Reggae in Symphony

I am responidng to an e-mail that was forwarded to my attention regarding Mr. Freddie McGregor’s assuming credit for the “Reggae In Symphony” concert that was held in NY in October 2007. May I inform you and the media that Mr. McGregor had nothing to do with that concert in NY except as a hired and paid artist to sing. The concert was produced and financed by myself in its entirety under the registered business name Unique Events. He should cease and desist promoting and building his career based on someone else’s ideologies. Based in his London show, I decided to bring its similarity to NY and named it such. He then ran with the concept to Florida under the same guise, and is continuing his mission to use the name in which people would assume that it is the same concert because of its success in NY. I am personally disclaiming that Mr. McGregor has no affiliations with Reggae In Symphony or the NY concert in October 2007. I would love to hear from you!!
