Wynberg Secondary School to perform at CT Jazz Festival's Community Concert
Wynberg Secondary School’s band will be taking to the stage with some of the greatest names in jazz at Africa’s Grandest Gathering.
The high school pupils will perform as part of the Cape Town International Jazz Festival’s Sustainable Training & Development programme.
Each year, one school participating in the programme’s Music & Careers workshops is chosen to perform at the following year’s Free Community Concert.
Wynberg Secondary School’s band was selected based on their performance and their participation in four workshops.
Craig Parks, Head of Training & Development, says: “We’re very proud of these young musicians. They have shown outstanding dedication to the programme and have grown immensely under the mentorship of our facilitator Lana Crowster. We look forward to seeing these young musicians taking to the stage as performers at future festivals.”
The teens will be lighting up the stage at Africa’s Grandest Gathering alongside some of the best local and international music icons, including PJ Morton from the USA, Jacob Collier from the UK, Abdullah Ibrahim, Jonathan Butler – with special guest Candy Dulfer from the Netherlands, Kwetu Trio (featuring Aaron Rimbui, Herbie Tsoaeli and Ayanda Sikade), Lira, Mandisi Dyantyis, MF Robots from the UK and South Africa’s Nduduzo Makhathini.
More top artists will be announced ahead of the Cape Town International Jazz Festival (CTIJF), which will take place on 27 and 28 March 2020 at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC).
General access tickets for the 2020 festival are available at Computicket at R999 for a Weekend Pass and R649 for a Day Pass
