KDay Music Concert

On Wednesday evening last week, over 200 young musicians from St Andrew’s College, DSG, and Kingswood College gathered in Centenary Hall for the annual KDay Music Concert. The hall was packed to over capacity with a very appreciative audience. The Kingswood Senior Choir, St Andrew’s College Chapel Choir, and DSG Chapel Choir all performed a variety of contemporary songs, folk songs, and traditional hymns, with the DSG Chapel Choir receiving a standing ovation for their rendition of the Zulu hymn ‘Nkosi Siphe’ Amandla’.

The instrumentalists were showcased in performances by the DSG/St Andrew’s College String and Wind Orchestras and by the Kingswood College String Ensemble and Concert Band. The evening ended on a high note with two outstanding collaborations. The first consisted of all the string players from the three schools, as well as the Kingswood Choir and the DSG/St Andrew’s College Chamber Choir, performing an arrangement by Virgil Matrass. This was followed by the highlight of the evening – over 60 wind, brass, and percussion players from the three schools performing a Michael Jackson tribute.

Well done to all the musicians and their teachers! These concerts seem to get better year after year!
