MusicTT to host LMD Mother’s Day Concert
The Trinidad and Tobago Music Company Limited (MusicTT) and the Ministry of Trade and Industry have partnered with the Ministry of Agriculture, Land and Fisheries, the Ministry of National Security and the Port-of-Spain City Corporation to host a Live Music District (LMD) Mother’s Day Concert on Sunday 13th May at the Gazebo in the Botanic Gardens from 6:30pm.
The public is invited to this free concert which will headline the Trinidad and Tobago Police Band, as well as various LMD artists. Interested persons are encouraged to walk with chairs, blankets, or even picnics items, and come enjoy an evening of music and giveaways for mom.
“The Live Music District continues to provide opportunities for artists who are registered under this project” says MusicTT’s Chairman, Mr. John Arnold. “Artists who have not yet registered can still do so on MusicTT’s website.”
The creation of the Live Music District is a key strategy being undertaken by MusicTT through CreativeTT and the Ministry of Trade and Industry in order to address some of the challenges of stakeholders in having performance opportunities. Access to music performance spaces was seen to be a major issue for music creatives, most of whom work a full time job parallel to their musical activities. In this four-month pilot phase, Trinidad and Tobago’s first Live Music District has established an online means by which venues and artists can connect, be booked and have regular performances throughout restaurants, bars, lounges and hotels. This music-tourism hub is intended to be a new tourist attraction outside of the Carnival season, creating jobs and other related forms of revenue generation.
The Mother’s Day Concert is one of LMD’s events for the month of May.
