The band played the three songs that their peers knew best - Waka waka, Mamma Mia and Fireworks. They literally brought the house down and the rest of the children could not stay in their seats - they were up dancing and cheering and it was so good to see the positive effect that this band has had on their community, thanks to this wonderful opportunity that has been afforded them by the very kind and generous Charles Banks.
The plan is now for forge forward and implement phase two where we will secure a second set of marimbas, find a venue in Wolseley and employ the current band members to teach the next wave of marimba players. We fully believe this is possible. To this end we have already a applied for NPO status and submitted a business plan to get this program going.
