Fairway Holdings, the champions of luxury vertical living in Sri Lanka, took great pride and pleasure recently in presenting international music icon Kenny G to a sell-out concert in Colombo.
Billed as the biggest selling instrumental musician of the modern era and one of the best-selling artistes of all time, Kenny G was in Sri Lanka for 18 hours, from very early morning to late last Saturday (15 Nov) night, en route from Los Angeles through Colombo to Thailand but wowed a packed-to-capacity Nelum Pokuna Theatre that night.
Opening the show by performing right in the middle of the audience, his simplicity and charm preceded him that night as he won fans over and even went out of his way to oblige them with his autograph.
Fairway Holdings Chairman Hemaka de Alwis said, “As the Presenting Sponsor of this iconic concert we were happy to give the Sri Lankan audience a unique opportunity of experiencing Kenny G ‘live’. The response we’ve had from the general public has been very positive and very encouraging.”
“We at Fairway Holdings have taken pride in associating ourselves with the arts. In line with our passion to instill an awareness of classical music among young Sri Lankans, we’ve teamed up with Lakshman Joseph de Saram and his celebrated ensemble. We’ve also teamed with Soundarie David and the Soul Sounds to take singing to larger audiences in this country,” de Alwis added.
Renowned for its leadership in luxury condominium development, Fairway Holdings is a name synonymous with luxury residences. As a forerunner in development of luxury vertical living in Sri Lanka, Fairway Holdings showcases three luxury sky towers in Rajagiriya and has started on the fourth, ‘The Elements’ with estimated completion in first quarter 2017. With another pioneering move, Fairway Holdings recently launched two more similar towers in Galle, literally at the end of the Southern Highway, taking the conveniences of vertical living beyond the boundaries of Colombo.
Established in 2003, within a span of a few years, the Fairway Group rapidly expanded into other areas of business interests and investments.
It is today a fully-fledged corporate operating in a plethora of industries, from real estate to manufacturing and trading operations, renewable energy projects, hire purchase services and most recently, the travel and leisure industry.
