Dengue:

Danger Of

An Epidemic
Anti-mosquito pulverizations
continue on the island, in the
hope of reducing the number of
mosquitoes, yet there is still
evidence of the dengue epidemic
that began three months ago.
During the first week of January,
there have been 24 new cases
that are almost certainly the
disease and seven '.i-s ilii lh.ave
been tested to absolutely be
dengue, which means a total of
333 people have been touched
by the virus, or almost 4% of
the population. During the first
week of January, an adult with
a mild version of Dengue
Hemorrhagic Fever was hospital-
ized, bringing the number of
people hospitalized since the
beginning of the epidemic to 12:
nine adults, of which five had
severe cases and one with the
hemorrhagic version, and three
children, ih!ilkJcr cases. The
level of severity of the disease
in Saint Barth is 2.4%, compared
to 0.38% currently in Saint
Martin, and 0.8% in Guadeloupe
during the epidemic of 2007, adds
to the disturbing news about
dengue fever, and demands a
major mobilization by the popula-
tion to stop this phenomenon.

25th Annual Music Festival

Off To A Rousing Start


It's hard to imagine how great
the music at the St Barth *
Music Festival really is!
Once again some of the world's
top musicians have gathered on
the island for a series of concerts
in the island's churches, and out-
doors at AJOE, where the John
Ellis Jazz Sextet played its sec-
ond concert last Saturday night.
Ellis and a stellar group of musi-
cians-his band Double Wide I
and friends (or Triple Wide as he '
joked at the opening concert last
Thursday at the Catholic Church
in Gustavia)-put on one heck of
a show. With Ellis on saxophone,
Alan Ferber on trombone, Aaron
Goldberg tickling the ivories,
Matt Perrine on tuba (or is that a
sousaphone? Why, yes it is!), Gre-
goire Maret on harmonica, and
Jason Marsalis, cool as a cucumber
on drums, you can't ask for a better
jazz band. With influences from New
Orleans, as well as church-inspired
music, and a few songs by Fred
Rogers of Mister Rogers' Neighbor-
hood fame (the popular kids' TV
show), the repertory was varied and
allowed the musicians to excel (some
of the harmonica solos were real
killers). At the AJOE concert, the
band marched through the audience
in true New Orleans fashion, much to
the delight of the crowd. Just as the
name Marsalis is synonymous with
great jazz, John Ellis and his band did
not disappoint in any way... they were
simply great!
On a different note, Friday night's
concert was a true virtuoso tour de
force by Jon Manasse on clarinet and
Jon Nakamatsu on piano. After the
"two Jons" displayed their joint tal-
ents on works by Carl Maria von
Weber and Frederic Chopin, Jon
Nakamatsu performed Bela Kovac's
Hommage A Manuel de Falla, as an
incredible piano solo. The concert
concluded with Four Rags For Two
Jons, a series of short jazzy numbers
written for them by John Novacek.
The rags were a fun way to end their

concert... although they were called
back for an encore and played George
Gershwin's Fascinating Rhythm.
Sunday afternoon, the students of
Saint Barth Harmony Suzuki School,
under the tutelage of music teacher
Gatien Vilain, performed at the Angli-
can Church. And who knows, maybe
a local student will follow in the foot-
steps of the soloists in the festival
orchestra some day?
Week two of the music festival is
more serious with evenings dedicated


to Bach and Mozart, as well as
San orchestral evening and the
popular opera evening, this year
featuring Puccini's Madame
Butterfly on Friday, January 15.
The Bach evening featured the
local choir, Le Chorale des
Bons Choeurs, under the direc-
tion of Charles Darden, in two
chorale works. But the real
highlights of the evening were a
bassoon solo by the world-
famous Alex Klein, who joked
that the suite he played was
written for unaccompanied cello
but since Bach's original notes
have never been found, one can
imagine it was written for the
bass oboe he was playing. "This
instrument was invented in the
last 19th century and fell imme-
diately into abandonment," he
said with a laugh. "It is enjoying a
comeback... as of tonight." He
proved his world status with a flaw-
less performance of the lively yet
emotional and technical music.
The 25th annual festival concludes with
a fund-raising dinner at Eddy's Restau-
rant on Sunday, January 18, and a final
concert on Monday, January 19, with
the celebrated Miro string quartet
playing works by Charles Ives, Kevin
Puts, and Antonin Dvorak.

John Ellis Jazz Sextet








Music Festival: A Touch of the Caribbean

For New Orleans Jazz


n i ciibration of the 25th
.Iniiii ersary of the St
B.1 iih Music Festival,
students at the Mireille
Choisy junior high school
had the opportunity to meet
sousaphone player Matt
Perrine during their music
class.
Born in California, this jazz
aficionado quickly moved
to New Orleans to hone his
chops. He came to the
school with his sousa-
phone, a variation on the
tuba invented by composer
John Phillip Sousa, who
originally wanted a tuba
with a mellower sound for
concerts, but it developed
into a staple for marching
bands and jazz funerals.
Today it is also a popular
instrument heard in the
music clubs of New
Orleans.
Matt Perrine's presentation
was full of humor as he ini-
tiated the students to his
music, and offered some of
them the chance to try to
play the sousaphone, much
to their amusement.
He also took advantage of
the opportunity to speak to

the students about hurri-
cane Katrina and the disas-
trous consequences it had
on the city of New Orleans,
where almost 80% of the
population lost everything.
Matt Perrine began to play
the sousaphone, as well as
the double bass and electric
bass, at the age of 12, the
same age as his student
audience. His multiple
musical talents allow him
to play many musical sty-
les, from reggae and jazz,
to African and Cuban
music as well.
He often accompanies such
New Orleans greats as
Bonerama or Royal Finger-

BRIAN LEWIS


Among the outstanding
world-class musicians who
come to the island every
January for the Saint Barth
Music Festival is Brian
Lewis, a 40 year-old violin
virtuoso who has been per-
forming here for at least the
past 15 years. He originally
met festival organizer,
Frances Debroff, through
his mentor Charles Stege-
man: "He was one of my
mentors musically," notes
Lewis, who met Stegeman
in Kansas City, MO. "He
advised me about going to
Juilliard, which teacher to
audition for, and which path
to take." In Saint Barth,
they play side by side in the
festival orchestra, with
Lewis and Stegeman serv-
ing as concertmaster for the


orchestral evening and the
opera evening, respectively.
At the Juilliard School of
music in New York City,
Lewis currently serves as
artistic director of the Star-
ling violin program. "We
have visiting teachers for
master classes including
Itzhak Perlman and David
Kim, concertmaster for the
Philadelphia Orchestra,"
says Lewis. "The Starling
Foundation underwrites the
tuition for 12 students up to
age 25."
In addition to his duties at
Juilliard, Lewis is also the
David and Mary Winton
Green Chair Fellow in
String Performance and
Pedagogy at The University
of Texas at Austin. "I love
Austin," he says. "It is a

very hip, liberal city to live
in." Now called the Butler
School of Music, thanks to
a 55-million dollar donation
from the Butler Family, the
school of music in Austin
provided an unusual oppor-
tunity for Lewis: to hold an
endowed chair by the age of
32 was a real blessing."
Coming back to Saint Barth
every year "is like getting
together with an extended
family and playing music
with your friends for very
appreciative audiences. And
playing it in paradise makes
it all the sweeter," says
Lewis, who appeared in a
concert of music by Bach,
as well as the orchestral and
opera evenings. He starred
in Bach's Double Violin
Concerto in D Minor, play-
ing with Daniel Ching, a
member of the Miro Quar-
tet, and a string section of
nine players. "We only had
rehearsal together," says
Lewis about the Bach,
which they played ili.hu :.1
conductor. But he adds, "the
first time I played this piece


I was seven, and Daniel
must know it well also. It's
a great learning piece and
one of the greatest double
concertos ever written."
And when musicians of this
caliber get together, one
rehearsal is clearly enough
for stellar results.
"The most challenging
piece we played this year is
the Tchaikovsky Symphony
Number 4 in F minor, opus
36, and James Stephenson
composed a world premiere
in honor of the 25th
anniversary of the festival,"
Lewis points out. But even
such challenging music
doesn't daunt the Lewis or
the other members of the
festival orchestra, which
comes together just once a
year for the concerts on the
island. "That's part of the
excitement of coming here,"
says Lewis. "The musicians
are principal players from
all over the world. It's a spe-
cial festival and a very spe-
cial orchestra."

Since the beginning R
of the school year,
the Saint Barth
Yacht Club (SBYC)
has replaced its old
fleet with 12 new
Vanguard RS FEVA
sailboats, designed
primarily for sailing
schools. The new
boats were anxious-
ly awaited for some -1
time, but lack of
financing delayed
their purchase. Dur-
ing the 2008 edition
of the Saint Barth
Bucket, race organizers
Hank Halsted and Melanie
Smith, put the SBYC in
contact with Camper &
Nicholsons. This interna-
tional yacht brokerage
firm, which would like to
establish a beachhead on
the island, financed the


purchase of the 12 new
boats, which were first
used by elementary school
students in the fall, and
since January by students
from the junior high.
The boats are in constant
use with the three elemen-
tary schools and the junior


high taking turns at the
tiller all week, much to the
joy of the students. But the
SBYC also continues its
yacht club activities on
Wednesday and Saturdays,
with 25 children enrolled
for classes. Last November,
kids from the club partici-


a pated in a regatta in
" Saint Martin, which
included competitors
from Anguilla, Saint
Martin, and Saint
Barth.
Last fall also saw the
arrival of two new
sailing instructors,
Brendan and Nicolas,
11 two young men from
Brittany who are
I sharing their passion
for sailing with the
island's students. In
addition, the SBYC
continues to host
internal competitions and
has future plans including a
project to bring young
American students from
poor neighborhoods to
learn to sail on the island.
This project might also be
financing in part by
Camper & Nicholsons.

DENGUE: PROTECT YOURSELF TO STOP ITS PROLIFERATION


Dengue fever is prevalent throughout the
Caribbean, including St Barthelemy.
Although the island is fully mobilized in
controlling dengue, you too can take pre-
cautions to protect yourself and help eradi-
cate it. Most dengue cases are benign,
but complications can develop. Seek med-
ical help if you develop dengue fever.

is fever
and how is if
Dengue fever is the most common mosqui-
to-borne viral diseases in the world.
Dengue fever is an illness caused by
infection from a virus transmitted by the
Aedes mosquito. There are four types of
the infectious dengue virus (serotypes 1 to
4). Types 1, 2, and possibly 4 have
been identified on St Barths. Infection with
one strain will provide protection only
against that particular strain. Future infec-
tion by other strains is possible. Dengue is
transmitted to humans by a bite from an
Aedes mosquito that carries the dengue
virus. You cannot "catch" dengue from
someone. Aedes aegypti, the dengue
mosquito can bite all day, and takes only
10days to complete its lifecycle.

Symptoms usually appear between 3-10
days of being bitten. Dengue fever is
characterized by the sudden onset of
high fever, (which can last up to 7 days
or more). It is often accompanied by one
or more of the following symptoms-
intense headache, back ache, body
aches, joint pains, loss of appetite, nau-
sea, vomiting and the development of
skin rashes. The most severe form is
known as haemorrhagic fever (which
includes a tendency to bruise easily or
other types of skin hemorrhages, bleeding
nose or gums, and possibly internal
bleeding). A blood test will often show
low platelets. Patients with dengue fever
often become dehydrated.



Go to the local hospital or contact a local
doctor. The Emergency Room at the hospi-
tal is fully prepared to deal with dengue.
The doctors and medical staff on St Barths
are experienced in dealing with dengue
cases and can provide excellent care and
advice. If you have left the island and sus-
pect you have dengue then go to your


doctor at home as soon as possible and
tell them that you may have been
exposed to dengue fever.


There is no specific treatment for dengue
or dengue haemorrhagic fever. Patients
should rest, drink plenty of fluids. Pain
relievers with acetaminophen are helpful
but patients should avoid those containing
aspirin. Consult a doctor. Supportive care
with intravenous fluids and frequent blood
test monitoring can reduce complications
of the disease. In severe and haemor-
raghic cases, blood transfusions may be
required. Hospitalisation is recommended
for patients who have severe symptoms,
and for patients with signs (eg, low
platelet counts) that may lead to haemor-
rhage (internal bleeding).


The best and only defense against dengue
is to not get bitten by an infected mosqui-
to. There is no vaccine or "cure". But you
can take several steps to protect yourself.
Applying insect repellent is the way most
people protect themselves against getting
bitten. But it is not the only way to guard
against mosquitoes; wearing long-sleeved
clothing, using mosquito nets while sleep-
ing and staying in mosquito-free rooms
are good measures to prevent mosquito
bites. Others include insecticide sprays
and burning repellent oils. You should
decide for yourselves on one or a combi-
nation of these.
Several insect repellents exist in the mar-
ket with a suite of active ingredients of
varying effectiveness, and that work dif-
ferently on each individual You can buy
a range of insect repellent at supermar-
kets and pharmacies in St Barths. Some
have natural or organic "bio" com-
pounds and others contain commercial
ingredients. DEET is the most common
active ingredient in most commercial
products. Most products contain DEET in
concentration between 7% to 20%. But
some contain 50% or even 100% DEET.
Higher concentrations of DEET do not
improve protection but do last longer in
terms of protection. (On average, con-
centrations of 6% protects for about two
hours, and 20% for about 4 hours.). If
you are unsure of what products to get,
talk to the pharmacists in St Barths who
are knowledgeable about dengue.
