UVI Music Program Receives Donation from Intellectual Global Concept USVI

The University of the Virgin Islands Music Program received a $30,000 donation from Intellectual Global Concepts USVI LLC during a formal check presentation in the Music Building, on the St. Thomas Campus, on Thursday Nov. 14.  

In May 2019, Intellectual Global Concept USVI LLC hosted a “Music is Life” benefit concert in St. John. The collaborative effort was done in conjunction with Viya, the Virgins Islands Department of Tourism, Coral Bay Caribbean Oasis, Marjorie Rawls Robert P.C., the Research and Technology Park (RT Park) and the University of the Virgin Islands. The proceeds of this event were intended to support the University’s recovery from the 2017 back-to-back Hurricanes Irma and Maria that damaged both of the University’s campuses and the RT Park. Of the $141,000 cash and in-kind-donations raised, the excess proceeds of the event after all expenses were paid in the amount of $30,000 is being donated to the Music Program at the University of the Virgin Islands to help support the development of future musical leaders in the U.S. Virgin Islands.  

“MUSIC IS LIFE USVI” is a festival brand that we want to continue to develop here in the U.S. Virgin Islands to continue our efforts in helping to support musical development across all ages and demographics,” said Paul and Cindy Talbert, co-founders of Intellectual Global Concept USVI LLC. “Further, we hope to inspire new innovative concepts through the use of technology and human interaction.”
