One of the parents of our past pupils, Joan Stokes, shared this extraordinary performance by the UCT Big Band and UCT String Ensemble on Tuesday night. Because it is Women's Day today, we thought we'd celebrate these three inspirational past pupils who continue to bring beautiful music to the broader community.
This is what Joan Stokes said:
ADAGIO - Beautifully sung and performed by Amy Campbell, UCT Big Band and UCT String Ensemble last night. The piece was conducted by Professor Mike Campbell (Amy's Dad). Three Wynberg Girls' High School graduates were playing together: Amy Campbell (voice - lecturer) Carla Stokes (Tenor Sax) and Lauren McDonald (1st Violins).
Joan commented further: This is a happy sad performance as many of the musicians are in their 4th and final year of studies at UCT.
