Saint Lucia Tourism Authority pledges support for two jazz events in May

St. LUCIA: On Thursday 5th May a press conference was held at the St Lucia Tourism Authority to announce the organization’s commitment to supporting private promoters in their quest to revive St Lucia Jazz events in May.

The St Lucia Tourism Authority has pledged support for two jazz events, Jazz ‘n The City, scheduled for May 14 at Constitution Park, and The St Lucia Jazz Sampler, scheduled for May 27 and 28 at Sandals Grande St Lucian. The Authority is the title sponsor of the St Lucia Jazz Sampler, which is celebrating its 8th season.

Announcing these events after more than two years of hiatus is great news for Saint Lucia and will set the stage for the resurgence of the Saint Lucia Jazz and Arts Festival from May 5-14, 2023.

In attendance were Cheryl Pitcairn from Sisterhood, Lydia Theobalds from Sisterhood, Thaddeus M Antoine, President of the Saint Lucia Tourism Authority, Lorine St Jules, CEO of the Saint Lucia Tourism Authority, Lorraine Sidonie, CEO of Events St Lucia, SLTA staff and ECSL staff. Also present were local media as well as regional and international media via a virtual conference platform.

The opportunity to collaborate with The Saint Lucia Jazz Sampler, Jazz N The City, and the creative sector helps bring our local talent to the fore more, as the lineup for both events is primarily made up of Saint Lucian artists.

The Gold Sponsors of the Saint Lucia Jazz Sampler are Events Company of Saint Lucia, LUCELEC and Republic Bank. The Silver Sponsors are St Lucia Distillers, Daher Broadcasting Services (DBS) and Helen Television Systems (HTS).

Tickets for the St Lucia Jazz Sampler are available at:
– Digicel Boulevard William Peter
– Steve’s hair salon
– The Rodney Bay Cell
