Production One Limited Exercises Social Responsibility With The Launch Of ‘JazZ BuddZ’
March 21, 2012 – Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago… As Production One Limited commemorates the decennial anniversary of its flagship event, Jazz Artists on the Greens (JAOTG), the leading jazz concert producer will signal a new era with the introduction of its music education programme, JazZ BuddZ, for Trinidad and Tobago’s at-risk youth. Focused on making a positive contribution to the social atmosphere of its homeland, the veteranevent management company will launch this ground-breaking programme on Friday March 23, 2012 at the Little Carib Theatre. Concurrently, celebrations of the momentous accomplishment of ten years of Caribbean jazz will culminate in the 10th annual JAOTG on the Greens at Farm Road, St. Joseph, this Saturday March 24, 2012.
Amidst the degrading communal framework of Trinidad and Tobago’s society, JazZ BuddZ was born with a vision to bring a rewarding experience to and to create an outlet for expression for young people from rural and under privileged communities across Trinidad and Tobago. The programme will award scholarships to youth to attend workshops offering practical training in an array of musical disciplines geared toward cultivating an understanding of and an appreciation for music in young minds.
Whilst JazZ BuddZ is in its preliminary developmental phase, Production One has reached out to several ministries including the Ministry of Gender, Youth and Child Development; the Ministry of Arts and Multiculturalism; and the Ministry of Education, as well as the University of Trinidad and Tobago’s Academy for the Performing Arts to establish synergies that will maximise the programme’s success. The concert producer is thankful for the opportunity to present JazZ BuddZ to government officials, diplomats, the media and other stakeholders. “Launching this programme is a statement of our commitment to make a difference in the lives of our nation’s youth and our country as a whole. We have looked to such brands as Bare Fruit Juices, Chop Chops and Barton & Guestier who have rallied around us to make this launch a reality,” shared Production One’s Director of Marketing, Rolf Doyle, as he expressed his gratitude.
