UTT’s Performance Arts Curriculum in September


President of the University of Trinidad and Tobago, Ken Julien, anticipates a speedier creation of a National Philharmonic Orchestra with the roll out of its performance arts curriculum at the National Academy for Performing Arts (NAPA) come September.

Julien, along with senior members of the university hosted media personnel at the recently opened NAPA yesterday morning for a tour of its academic facilities at the building in Port-of-Spain and to announce the recipients of honorary doctorates at UTT’s graduation exercise on Saturday.

Trinidad and Tobago’s first President, Sir Ellis Clarke and former dean of the UTT agriculture faculty, Professor John Spence, will be honoured by the university for their contributions to the country in the political and educational arenas respectively.

Oliver Flax, Senior Vice President, at UTT, during a presentation, said 26 members of staff had already been recruited in the areas of music (Caribbean, Indian Classical, Western Classical and Jazz), dance, acting, sound technology and lighting.

While conducting the tou-r of the facilities, he said recruitment began in anticipation of the opening of the academy last year, but since this date was pushed back, the recruitment process was slowed.

He added however, the university will be looking for additional staff members to cater to future students of the academy.

UTT also plans to host outreach programmes where they provide music service to primary and secondary schools across the country.
