Combined Concert Band at Stellenbosch Band Extravaganza

The WBHS/WGHS Concert band had an eventful weekend with performances on Friday the 9th and Saturday the 10th of May. On Friday we performed at the Stellenbosch Band Extravaganza at Endler Hall in what proved to be a wonderful night of excellent musical entertainment. Among the other performers were the Stellenbosch University Wind Band, Hugo Lambretch’s Wind Band and Harmonic Brass – a phenomenal brass quintet all the way from Munich! Both the girls and the boys thoroughly enjoyed playing in the concert as well as listening to the other bands.
