Other than the opening night of the Marimba School, this is the first time that the juniors performed in front of an audience. Everyone was very excited and the seniors showed special attention and pride in their protege.
The juniors first started playing marimbas in December 2015 and now play 12 songs faultlessly. The two bands started together playing these songs that they both knew and then the juniors stepped aside and watched the seniors performing on their own, upping the game bit.
We were extremely proud of the way that the juniors conducted themselves and performed as were we of the way the seniors took the lead and showed the juniors the way forward.
We have exciting things lined up and if we have learnt anything in the past couple of years with this group, it is this!
Have a Dream
Believe in it.
Do what you can towards achiving it
You will be amazed what you can achieve.We have achieved many dreams and goals in this way.
Our plans for 2016 are to start African Dancing and Drumming, involve no less than 50 children in the school and to source a vehicle for easy transport. We also wish to create one or two permanent posts. We may not achieve all of this by the end of the year, but we will make a good go of it and get there sooner or later.
