Windworx Fanfare

Windworx Fanfare took place at Wynberg Boys’ High School on Saturday the 17 May. It is an annual showcasing of wind bands from around the peninsula. These include bands from universities, schools and the Windworx Band which comprises professional musicians. Windworx Fanfare is not a competition or an eisteddfod but an opportunity for musicians to come together and share their talents with the community and one another. Recitals are commented on by adjudicators who give positive and negative critique. The combined Wynberg Girls’ and Boys’ High School Concert Band played four items, “Skyfall”, “Palladio”, “It Had Better Be Tonight” and “The Showstopper.” They performed beautifully under the baton of Mr. Catzavelos, their dedicated maestro. The evening was wrapped up by a performance of two items by the mass band of 250 musicians who had played throughout the day. A thunderous applause from the audience was clearly all the acknowledgment required by the musicians.
