The St. Vincent and the Grenadines Community College (SVGCC) Carollites passed their exam with flying colours to secure the win in the 2023 Christmas Carolling Contest, which was held on December 19th, 2023 at the Russell’s Auditorium.
The group of 30 performers wowed the audience, online viewers and judges, with their melodious rendition of Carol of the Bells, on their way to capturing the Best Traditional Song title. Their original song, written by Utamu “Bongo Prime” Rose, was also well received and brought about nostalgia as the choir reflected on the “old time days” during their energetic delivery.
For taking the top spot, the SVGCC Carollites walked away with the Glen Jackson Challenge Trophy, the first place trophy, a voucher for lunch at La Vue Boutique Hotel and Beach Club and $3,000.00 cash prize.
Congratulations to the SVGCC Carollites Choir Coordinators – Ishanta Mc Master-Cummins and Disel Cupid, Choir Consultant – Ronnie Richardson, Choir Director – Kalique Peters, singers and dancers.
