Plans are afoot to set up a community recording studio next to the newly refurbished Three Hills Community Centre and Sports Complex, in Western St. Mary.
This announcement was made last week by State Minister in the Office of the Prime Minister, with responsibility for Local Government, Hon. Robert Montague, at the handing over ceremony for the centre and sports complex.
The facilities and a fenced football field, on which work was carried out at a cost of some $13 million, were officially opened by the Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture, Olivia Grange.
“We have now identified the funds and we will put it (studio) right next to this building. What we need is some money for the equipment,” Mr. Montague said, adding that construction work on the studio should begin soon.
The State Minister, who is also Member of Parliament for the area, said there are many talented young persons in the area who need to be exposed.
“We have to expose the talents of our young persons, so that one day we can hear them say that they are not only from St. Mary, but that they come from Three Hills,” he said.
After making the announcement, Mr. Montague asked Minister Grange to assist in acquiring equipment for the studio.
In her response, Miss Grange made a commitment to supply the equipment. “I look forward to coming back here to officially declare this studio opened. St. Mary has Capleton, Lady Saw, Tanya Stephens, Beres Hammond and Josie Wales, so the recording studio that we will put in here, will give you more great musicians and great artistes,” she said.
