Jumby Bay Island had the pleasure of welcoming two musically talented forces, the Kanneh-Mason Family returned for a second year, and they were joined by renowned double-bassist Chichi Nwanoku. The artists played at a special event at Jumby Bay Island’s Estate House for this year’s iteration of the “Playing To Inspire” concert. In addition to the private concert on the island, both the Kanneh-Mason ensemble and Chichi Nwanoku played at various schools on Antigua to inspire the local children of both Antigua & Barbuda to look to the classical musical arts for inspiration and expression. The ultimate goal will be to raise up a new Antigua & Barbuda Youth Symphony Orchestra.

The video below is from the family’s playing to inspire concert at the Estate House.
