Minister St.Ange said the the Ministry of Tourism and Culture was working with the Office of the Mayor, the community of artists and choirs to mark the 2013 end of year festivities with an evening with a difference. "We need to work with the community of artists, and we need to work with our country's choirs to make this 2013 end of year festivities one that will set the stage for the years to come. Christmas and the end of year celebrations remain dear to us as a people and as a country, and we owe to ourselves and to our country to provide a launch of these celebrations where families, where young couples, where the elderly can all come together for a musical spectacle with christmas songs, carols and end of year songs by our professionals accompanied by budding artists. We all know when the community of artists decide to come together what magical an evening they can stage for Seychelles" Minister Alain St.Ange said.
"At this second meeting the representatives of the island's musicians, choirs, musical bands and other known musical personalities all agreed that the time is right for everyone to come together to give Seychelles a family evening out with entertainment, fun and end of year christmas and the arrival of the new year songs we have all loved and cherished throughout our lives" Minister St.Ange said.
Mr Jimmy Savy of the NAC discussed the setting up of the the show management as Mr Patrick Victor, the representative of the Musicians Associations echoed his commitment for the 'Christmas with the Stars' evening and the representatives of some choirs agreed to all come together for a spectacular night also with carols.
The organisers promised some real surprises for that evening where Victoria will see a display with musicians arriving on stage by means never seen before by the general public.
