Taiwanese Ambassador Benjamin Ho handed over a consignment of marching band instruments valued at twenty five thousand US dollars to Governor General Sir Colville Young as a contribution to his Music in the Schools Program. Sir Colville thanked Ambassador Ho for his generous gift to the young people of Belize and explained that most of the instruments would be given to St. Andrews Primary School in San Ignacio and the Anglican Cathedral College in Belize City. The Governor General explained that the two institutions had been selected because they fulfilled the requirement of having a good music teacher able to work with the students to put the instruments to good use. At this morning’s ceremony, the Governor General also presented Ambassador Ho with two copies of a recording of the Belizean musical folk-play “Tiga Dead” as performed by the Capital Culture Drama Club of Belmopan under the direction of Beverly Swasey.
