Young Bahamian producer to launch music competition

Recording artist and producer Andrew ‘Drew Harmony’ Gardiner fueled by his love for anything music related yesterday announced the launch of a high school band competition called the music project which to engage student musical talent through mentorship and participation in a pop band competition set for February of next year.

During a press conference held at Comfort Suites Paradise Island, Mr. Gardiner and his executive team officially launched The Music Project.

“Our biggest goal is that The Music Project provides a positive outlet for youth development through the arts,” he said.

“Not only is the program designed with dedicated practice, responsibility, and teamwork in mind, but it provides a much needed platform for creative and gifted young people of The Bahamas.”

Mr. Gardiner said the idea stemmed from conversations he had with family and friends where they discussed how to combat social challenges within Bahamian youth populations, including underdevelopment of professional skills, violence, and boredom.

Chairman of TMP Ms. Kay-Andra Gardiner said the team has been working very hard to ensure the project is world class and worthy of international recognition.

“Our team has been very careful to create a program and event that is world-class and worthy of an international stage,” she said.

“We’re eager to see The Music Project’s vision of building spirited communities where cultural expression is encouraged and supported in an industry where infinite talents, hobbies, and career opportunities exist come fruition next year.”

The first place winner will receive a summer study abroad course concentrating on music performance and sound design at the world renowned Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts and the second and third place winners will receive cash prizes.

Registration is free and competition will be held on February 4, 2017, all private and public schools can participate.
