Senior Open Concert and Sunset Show

Last week the second Senior Open Concert and the annual Sunset Concert were held. The Senior Open Concert took place in the Music School on Wednesday 15 March to a small but very appreciative audience. It was wonderful to have such a varied programme, showcasing seven different instruments. The following pupils shared their music with us. It takes a great deal of courage to perform solo in public.

Tumelo Matona, Mitchell Hartney, Digby Simpson, Ande Zilwa and Kimi Coetzee – all on piano. Tristan Ssekimpi on clarinet. Louis Nchindo on flute. Gcobani Ndadana and Mia Karimba on tuba. Zoe van der Walt on trombone. Sibabalwe Matebese on bass guitar and Cornelia Rocher on viola

The programme ended with the Jazz Ensemble performing Freedom Jazz Dance and So Danco Samba.

The Sunset Concert was held on the DSG Junior Field on Saturday 18 March. Despite being an overcast evening, the performers entertained an appreciative audience against the beautiful natural backdrop of the mountains and trees.

Well done to our performers Nikita Xhanti, Megan Emslie, Tyler Wratten, Kganya Matshoga, Sauvan Sewsunker, Arav Sewsunker, Loapi Mokgatlhe, Yolo Sogoni, Kanya Torp-Nelani, Buhle Ndlovu and Grace Fraser. The DSG Marimba Band also performed two funky pop items. Siviwe Quma and Kanya Torp-Nelani were superb as the MCs, and a special congratulations must go to Sauvan Sewsunker and Grace Fraser, the Cultural Prefects, for organising this special event!
