2016 Rock of Ages Concert

The Rock of Ages Concert is an event organised and presented by the Wynberg Girls’ and Boys’ High Heads of Culture and Service in the Aileen Currie Hall. Meticulous and thoughtful planning is given to the event, as they prepare an afternoon of entertainment for the elderly. Invitations are extended to our guests and what is essentially a high tea is organised by the Service Pillars, while a carefully considered programme of entertainment is drawn up by the Head of the Cultural Pillar – Juliet Stromin.

They did a fabulous job this year, and there is no doubt that our guests were delighted. Guests arrived to the African sounds of our Senior Marimba Band whose energy, celebratory joy and pure delight in performing together is utterly captivating. Once all had arrived, they were warmly welcomed by Juliet and Kayla and the entertainment continued: the Jazz Band  followed by our Flute Ensemble. The Wynberg Boys’ Duo “The Way you look  tonight” charmed every member of the audience and the stellar performance by the Vocal Ensemble of  “New York State of Mind” was equally appreciated. Robyn van Dam’s tap dancing (Mamb0 #5 and All about that Bass) delighted young and old and the fabulous Sinatra sounds of Fly me to the Moon by a Wynberg Trio this time, had everybody swaying and tapping in time. The afternoon ended with fabulous performances from our Orchestra (Pearl Harbour) and Choir (Bright) and the guests exclaimed that it was all over much too soon.

Juliet and Kayla did a superb job this year. Some members of the audience said that they had been to this event for a number of years, and that it was one of the nicest they had ever attended.  Many thanks to the staff members who made themselves available for this function: Mrs Paverd, Ms Orpen, Ms Pearce, Mrs van Bergen, Mr Lewis and Mr Saayman. Thanks to our fabulous Occasions Team and Tech Team members whose attention to the smooth running of events like these cannot be underestimated. Well done to all involved. You served your school well and did us proud.
