Gala Concert

On Thursday evening (19 February) the CPYO and CPYWE  help their annual gala concert at the Cape Town City Hall hosted by radio personal Carl Wastie. The CPYWE started the show off with a bang playing Also Sprach Zarathustra from memory on the top steps of the City Hall steps and then walked down to perform pieces such as the Suite of Old American Dances and Freedom as well as Skyfall and Jump Swing Fever with accomplished jazz singer and Wynberg Old Girl, Melanie Scholtz. After interval, CPYO and the Erub Children’s choir took to the stage performing La Forza, Lord of the Dance and a piece by Peter Klatzo, who was in the audience as well as the man responsible for writing the lyrics for the song.

All in all it was a fantastic evening. Audiences were left amazed by the performances of both the youth orchestras and Wynberg Girls’ was definitely represented extremely well.
