A part of the Lydians’ mission statement says, “We believe in God. Our belief demands that we live in service of God’s greater glory. We recognise that music is a gift and that the ability to perform it is a grace – this leads us to develop our skills to their fullest and to give to all who wish our co-operation and support that they may develop their own ability. ”
With this in mind, the Lydians celebrated 40 years of musical excellence last weekend with Deo Gratias (Thanks be to God) at Queen’s Hall, St Ann’s.
Lydians’ chairman Sterling Frost noted, “As we celebrate the 40th anniversary, we look back with profound gratitude for the outpouring of support over the years by you, our patrons. You have become part of the Lydian family. I am sure what has drawn your support is the beautiful blending of the voices and the transcendental way that choral paired with orchestral music lifts your spirit and touches your soul.”
Chief Justice Ivor Archie was among the specially-invited guests at the gala event last Friday.
