The Music Project – High School Band Competition

Andrew Gardiner and Raquel Pinder visited the Star 106 studio on Monday, August 28, 2017, to promote The Music Project, a high school band competition.

The Music Project consists of all high-schools in the Bahamas, and it pairs Bahamian icons and influentials with students, according to Gardiner. The students are able to learn about the music industry as well as improve their skills.

The main goal of The Music Project is to place these students on the big stage.

The winner of the competition will receive a summer scholarship to Berklee College of Music in Boston, where they’ll be able to choose programs that best suit their interests.

Registration begins on September 1st, 2017 and ends on October 13th, 2017.

The main event is on February 17, 2018, at Botanical Gardens.

Tessa Lightbourne

Tessa Lightbourne became a radio personality four years ago when she began hosting on Hot 91.7. After almost a year, she relocated to Star 106, Hot 91’s parent station, where she hosted Tessa’s Rendezvous. Currently, Tessa hosts The Fix with Sawyer Boy every weekday from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

According to Tessa, the best aspect of radio is listening to music, although nowadays, she does most of her listening when she’s working. Her favorite artist is Sade, but Beres Hammond is a close second. Besides co-hosting The Fix, Tessa Lightbourne also owns an online bakery, Bourne Sweet.
