String Ensemble Report 2018
2018 has, in many ways, been a year of growth for the string ensemble. A number of new performance opportunities have been added. The ensemble has reached a total of 18 members, who have grown in confidence.
We started the year off with a performance at The Strings Celebration Concert held at Collegiate High School where we were one of nine string ensembles to take part.
The annual Pearson Proms held at the Feather Market Centre was also a great success as was our first ever performance at the SASMT music competition.
A highlight for the ensemble was raising R3000 for Isithembiso Babies Home through a benefit concert held at our school. It was a delight to have St George’s Prep Strings join us for this “concert with a cause”.
We ended the year by celebrating “Christmas in October” with over 200 participants including Alexander Road High School Strings, Harvest Strings and VP High School Strings joining a number of choirs to make a glorious sound to end off a wonderful year of music.
