Dear Colleague:

Greetings and best wishes for the new day. How did Queen’s College influence your musical life/tastes?  This e-mail requests your participation in an initiative to commemorate Queen’s College’s 170th anniversary.

Since August 6, 1844, Queen’s College has been an important institution in Guyanese society.  Norman Cameron’s A History of the Queen’s College of British Guiana [Guyana] and Laurence Clarke’s Queen’s College of Guyana:  Records of a Tradition of Excellence (1844–1994) provide valuable information on the history of the school and a record of achievements.  There is need to complement those core works with deeper explorations of the school’s contribution to Guyanese social, scientific, political and cultural life.

The initiative referred to above will focus on Q. C’s contribution to Guyanese musical life since 1844.  Over the past week, a conversation with this focus was launched on the Facebook site—“Queen’s College and Guyanese musical life since 1844.”   Continue reading
