For the residents of a tropical island, the fourth annual Roatan Christmas Concert for the Angels was a great way to catch up on culture. “Apasionato” chamber orchestra from Tegucigalpa not only performed classical pieces, but assisted two jazz guitarists. This year’s special musical guest was Guillermo Anderson, an internationally reknown singer and guitarist from La Ceiba.

Steel Pan Alley band, conducted by Deborah Rricekapp, welcomed all guests at the entrance to the Manuel Galvez International Airport, turned for one evening into a Symphony Hall. Item auction did especially well, bringing in record number of funds. Two high demand items on the auction block was a Motor scooter and a set of architectural design plans donated by Hal Sorrenti.

This year’s December 4 event and fundraiser benefited three non profits: Clinica Esperanza, Familias Saudables, Roatan Daycare Center. Plaques of recognition were presented to the organizers of the event. [/private]
