Music Notes 10 March 2017

 

This Friday is a very important day on the Music calendar as it is the Band Slam at the V & A Waterfront Amphitheatre. Our Jazz Band will be playing at 18h00. Crowd participation is an important criteria that helps to determine whether one will succeed to the next round. May I request that as many music parents and band parents support this 20-minute gig. It promises to be fantastic! Mr Buitendag has added some vocal numbers so you are sure to be entertained.
Congratulations to Sarah Philander (violin) who has been selected to take part in the National Chamber Music Festival in Franschhoek over the Easter holidays. This is a wonderful achievement and the Music Department is very proud of her.

We also would like to acknowledge Stephanie Keyser and Kaitlin Downie (violin) who both auditioned for the South African Youth Orchestra. We are holding thumbs and are waiting in anticipation for the results.
Have a wonderful weekend and in the words of Nietsche:

Without music, life would be a mistake
