Great community event - concert on January 11th at Paradise Theater.

The mission of the recently organized Belize Academy of the Performing Arts (BAPA) to create a high-caliber, professional national symphony in Belize to strengthen and expand music education throughout the country. BAPA’s creation was announced in April 2019 by Belize Governor-General Sir Colville Young and Attorney Joel Nagel, a resident of San Pedro Town and the chairman of Caye International Bank Ltd.

BAPA consists of classically trained musicians, as well as Belizean music teachers and students. Peter Illavsky, world-renowned Cellist in Vienna, Austria, will be responsible for the day-to-day leadership of BAPA.

The Belize Academy for the Performing Arts will host a series of concerts as well as music training for teachers and students this January 2020. Seven International musicians from Europe and the United States, along with regional musicians from Mexico and Guatemala, will travel to Belize and join the best musicians in Belize for this year’s concert series.

A few concerts are planned right here in San Pedro. Peter Illavsky along with other international professional musicians and Belizean music students, will bring you the music of Mozart and other notable composers.

The first concert will be held at 7:00 pm 11 January 2020 at the Paradise Theater. Ticket revenue will cover venue costs. Grand Baymen Gardens is supplying room accommodations for the musicians. Caye International Bank, ECI Development and Attorney Joel Nagel are assisting with logistics. A free concert will be held at Living Word Church Sunday Morning 10:45 12 January 2020.

Additionally, children are invited to meet with Peter Illavsky and the other musicians Saturday afternoon, 11 January, at 4:00 pm at the city park. They are encouraged to bring their instruments if they play. A limited number of free tickets will be handed out to some of the attendees.

Please follow the Belize Academy for the Performing Arts Facebook page for announcements.

Tickets can be purchased locally at the ECI Marriott Sales office (Blue Casita) by Crazy Canuck’s or from any Rotaract member. Additionally, you can message Belize Academy for the Performing Arts, or call 614-5507. Tickets will also be available at the Theater the night of the performance.

If are unable to attend the concert and would like to support this effort, donations can be made via PayPal to: [email protected]

Thank you for helping to bring classical music to our “La Isla Bonita.”

Austrians Celebrate Beethoven in Belize

On Thursday night, the Bliss Institute will host a homage to the 250th anniversary of Ludwig Van Beethoven's birth. This homage is unique because it is being led by a group of musicians from the country Beethoven came to call home: Austria.

They have travelled to Belize to share their musical techniques while gaining inspiration from Belize's rich and distinct styles of musical expression. Cherisse Halsall found out more:

The concert at the Bliss is free. But, if you can't make Thursday's performance, fear not. The Austrian Chamber of Music has a second Belize City concert lined up for Friday at the Mexican Cultural Institute - and that is also free.

The group will also perform in San Pedro, as well as host three days of music workshops at the University of Belize's Belmopan campus from Monday, January 13th to Wednesday, January 15th.

On the evening of Saturday, January 11th, island residents enjoyed a rare treat; live Chamber music from Austrian and international musicians. Held at the Paradise Theatre, the Belize Academy of the Performing Arts (BAPA) ensemble performed an eclectic collection of compositions from Fiorillo, Mozart, Rossini, Kummer, Reneau and even a piece composed by Belize’s Governor-General Sir Colville Young. A piece for violin and cello from their conductor and pianist Ako Banlaky was also performed.

The talented group of world-renowned musicians included cellist Peter Illavsky, Jacqueline Kopacinski on violin, Jaroslav Meluzin on viola, Lois Robinson on double bass and Belizean soprano Kanie Herera who performed a few classical and nostalgic songs like My Funny Valentine, and I Could Have Danced All Night accompanied by Blanlaky.
