Reichhold Center Launches New Concert Series - “RCA Sessions” to Highlight VI Talent

The Reichhold Center for the Arts is launching a new project aimed at showcasing the artistic talents of Virgin Islanders. The concert series, dubbed RCA Sessions, will launch as a live streaming event on Thursday, March 18, at 7 p.m. featuring local reggae band Dub Lab. Concert viewers will enjoy bi-monthly performances by local performing artists who are encouraged to explore their creativity and develop works that exemplify their art form.  

“We are very excited to present this project which was initially slated for a live audience in 2017,” said Denise Humphrey, director of the Reichhold Center. “The original concept was based on the success of student performances that occurred before our main stage acts,” she explained. “We were inspired to revisit the project after successfully collaborating with the VI Council on the Arts last October to facilitate the presentation of the SHUT Down Band and Macislyn Bamboula Dance Company for the Kennedy Center: Arts Across America programming,” she said. 

Though performance arts are the foundation of this project, Humphrey noted that her team has developed some creative ideas on ways to include other artistic disciplines. “We plan to add a unique spin on the development of the art as it unfolds live on the stream,” she said. The creative minds behind RCA Sessions include Dionne Donadelle, Anthony Nibbs, Luben Daniel, and Tasida Kelch, along with the Reichhold Team; Marcus Daniel, Feja Lima and Jae Knight.
