Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago 19 August 2019 – The Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, the Honourable Olivia Grange, has expressed deep sadness at the passing of Jamaican musicologist and composer, Noel Dexter.
Minister Grange said:
“I was saddened to learn of the passing of another of Jamaica's icons in music - Noel Dexter. Mr Dexter's choral compositions were quintessentially Jamaican and Caribbean in flavour.
His impact as choir director of the University Singers is legendary. He leaves a great legacy in what he did to promote our culture and the many lives that he’s touched.
Noel Dexter’s passing has created a void in our musical landscape.
I offer sincerest condolences to his family and friends.”
