If you enjoyed the festival of choirs and you need a bit more of the vocal blessings, then you can enjoy more sounds of The New Bethel SDA Praise Team minister at the all talked about concert for Devon Jarvis set for Saturday, November 5th at the PRECISION CENTRE. Don't you miss this awesome occasion to receive your blessings.

I thoroughly enjoyed the sda praise team. Excellent rendition, would love to see them again. The national youth choir was also very good. Nice clean, crisp voices.


Kudos to CIBC FirstCaribbean

It is great and refreshing to see Corporate Antigua getting involved in sponsoring a National event that is not jump and wine.
I thoroughly enjoyed this Festival of Choirs. Thanks to CIBC FCIB for providing the funds that made it possible.
