May 10, 2004: The recent announcement that STARfest, billed as “The Virgin Islands’ Best Show” will hit the television airwaves was met with a buzz unlike any other throughout the territory. The longstanding showcase of Virgin Islands talent has just celebrated its 10th anniversary with sold out performances and a command encore on May 16, 2004.
Now, we can collectively reminisce and relive the joy of earlier STARfest shows as well as thrill to up-and-coming talent as STARfest comes to WTJX-TV, the Virgin Islands’ PBS affiliate.
The shows will be one-hour capsules of past shows until STARfest 10 has its night – thereafter STARfest will become a weekly series of local talent in the spotlight.
Reichhold Center Director David Edgecombe’s foresight in instituting the The Reichhold’s Digital Media Institute years ago has led to a crop of talent both behind the scenes AND before the camera’s eye.
