A successful fundraising brunch

USC Music hosted its Sunday Brunch on March 25, 2018. This event which formed part of a larger fundraising drive of the Department was held in a tastefully decorated Cafe, located opposite the main Library building.

The brunch took place over a four hour period which began at 9:00 am and offered a well presented and tasty assortment of foods and beverages arranged in several bars. These were labelled the Cereal bar, Soup bar, Waffles and Pancake bar, Salad and Fruit bar and Omelette bar. The extensive food offering was supported by an assortment of desserts, juices and sides dishes appealing to all palates.

Over 150 patrons were seated at tables alternatively draped with USC colours (Gold and yellow), topped with green bamboo table decor pieces filled with assorted coloured flowers,  a reminder to patrons of the campus' famous green environment. Large palm branches and small palm trees all added to a truly relaxing atmosphere, which was enhanced by soft music provided by the 'Anton Charles and Co' band consisting of Anton Charles (keyboard), Dane Charles (bass guitar), Golden Philbert (drums) and Kerron Hislop (Sax).

The Brunch, which could have also be dubbed a "vegan food fest" featured awesome and tasty foods such as bhagi, spicy tomato choka, coconut chai pudding, Quinoa salad, sun-dried tomato hummus and vegan cassava pone all served by student workers, several of whom are associated with USC Music either as students, choir members or simply supporters of USC Music.

Patrons included the Vice President of Academic Administration, Dr Wanda Chesney, Dean of the School of Education and Humanities, Dr Loverne Jacobs-Browne, and several alumni of the USC. All indicated the event was very enjoyable. This was the first by the department and for many, there is certainly a looking forward to the next.
