On Friday the 28th of October, WGHS jazz band performed with Steenberg Jazz Band at Band Stand at the Artscape. It was an amazing performance filled with talented musicians all round!

Steenberg reached out to us after their sponsor could no longer fund their music department. Their conductor Ian Smith had contacted Dayna Pearce for help and she gladly accepted, and we began our task of learning the new pieces of music.

The WGHS jazz band worked hard for the past 2 weeks to prepare for this performance. The first time the two bands got together was on the performance night for sound check. To say that it sounded great is an understatement. The way both bands came together was just fantastic. It was a privilege to play with such young talented individuals.

Well done to both Wynberg and Steenberg bands!
