Band Camp 2017
Band Camp is always a time of intense concentration on the music at hand and plenty of fun in the sun. This year’s camp proved to be no exception. Under these conditions, we were able to achieve in two days, what would normally have taken six to eight weeks to accomplish. As a result, the band has broken the back of our new repertoire and it now merely remains to work on a final polish. Ms du Toit and Miss Ferraris provided valuable assistance with the woodwind and percussion sections respectively. As always, Mr Garner regaled the band members with his interesting tales and scary ghost stories. This year the senior girls arranged a combined birthday and farewell party in honour of Mr Garner and Mathew Draai who celebrated their birthdays at camp and Ms du Toit who will be leaving us at the end of the term.
