Hope for annual event

PASIFIKA Voices is confident the MANA Choral Fest held last weekend can become an annual event.

The festival, which featured a choir made up of students from 13 Suva schools and guest appearances by local artist Mr Grim and New Zealand's Adeaze was a hit as the three shows held at the FMF Gymnasium in Suva were sold out.

"We're grateful to our sponsors, they have lightened the burden for the Pasifika Voices," Igelese Ete, the head of performing arts of the Oceania Centre for Arts Culture and Pacific Studies at the University of the South Pacific said.

"We are also grateful to Flour Mills of Fiji (FMF) for coming forward to be a major sponsor, giving them the naming rights of the festival," he said.

"This means that through this partnership, there is a possibility we can hold this annually for our students, the challenge for the organisers — USP, Pasifika Voices, Ministry of Education — has always been the financial support."
