Registration opens for High School Music Challenge
The convener of the Lagos High School Music Challenge-(LHSMC), Mr. Biodun Kupoluyi, said secondary school students with flair for music can register as solo performers, groups or bands in the competition, which aims at promoting live music and band culture to preserve Nigeria’s rich cultural heritage.
Speaking on Television Continental’s Breakfast Show recently, the award winning entertainment journalist and media entrepreneur said talents in music could be combined with academic excellence. He said the novel Lagos High School Music Challenge project is a music talent hunt program conceived and designed to discover, develop, promote live music and band culture among solo performers, groups and bands in secondary schools in Lagos.
Kupoluyi emphasised that the LHSMC keys into the need for a creative economy, which the Lagos State Governor Akinwunmi Ambode is propagating with the Tourism, Hospitality, Entertainment, Sports Excellence – T-H-E-S-E- policy to help youngsters in secondary schools develop a vocation or skill outside academics.
Besides music education, he said the programme would project the diverse and distinctive culture of Nigeria while celebrating the nation’s rich and proud history.
The grand finale scheduled for June 21, 2018, coincides with the globally celebrated World Music Day, after a series of elimination across six educational districts of Lagos.
LHSMC supported by the Lagos State’s Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture is also listed in the State’s Tourism Calendar for 2018.
