Something Extra | Thursday
On Tuesday, the Alpha Institute officially opened the Colm Delves Centre, the new home of Alpha’s iconic School of Music. The Digicel Foundation sponsored the renovation of the school’s old dormitories to create a dedicated space for students to learn music and other skills. The newly renovated building was dedicated to Digicel’s former CEO, Colm Delves, who passed away in April 2020 after a battle with cancer. Digicel founder Denis O’Brien and Digicel Foundation CEO Charmaine Daniels were present at the launch, which, O’Brien noted, was the Digicel Foundation’s largest spend in a music programme to date. Something Extra brings you the highlights.
