52fc3aa1818419fa1244f566812bacb3We know the importance of Alpha Institute to the advancement of Jamaican culture, with music being a significant part, recently the living area of the school was closed and a new innovative music and vocational two year-skills training program was started.
This is a part of the reason why we at Denmark Support Alpha Boys would like to help the Alpha Institute with a support project within our Jamaica 54th Independence Celebration, allowing the Scandinavians who love and work with Jamaican culture to come on board and support.
We plan to ask for donations in the repairing of the music building, salaries for teachers and equipment for the studio from Scandinavian’s organizations, companies, music venues, reggae dj’s /sound systems and artists/bands who have worked with and made a success from Jamaican music and culture. We intend to do several supporting stage shows cultural and family events for adults & children. All ticket sales, revenue from these shows will go to the Alpha Institute minus expenses.

This Supporting project is 100% legal and transparent. We have registered this project with the Danish Fundraising Board who have reviewed and made their approval http://www.indsamlingsnaevnet.dk/.

Alpha is known for being a premiere source of jazz, ska and rocksteady musicians before becoming a cradle of reggae. Jazz pioneers, ska originators, reggae icons and a dancehall king have attended Alpha since the music program began in 1892.

Alpha students have been nominated for a Grammy (Yellowman), starred in Rockers (Leroy ‘Horsemouth’ Wallace), played with The Beatles and Rolling Stones (Edward ‘Tan Tan’ Thornton) and hailed by Miles Davis (Dizzy Reece). Sister Mary Ignatius Davies is often associated with the impact of Alpha’s music students.
