1st Inner City High Schools Marimba Festival

2019-07-13 20:52:17

The Outreach Foundation is excited to announce the 1st Inner City High Schools Marimba Festival.

This year, learners from four inner-city schools: Phoenix College, Centurion College, Our Lady of Wisdom School and Barnato Park High School, have attended weekly marimba workshops facilitated by Themba Moyo.

Many of Outreach Foundation’s marimba programme’s alumni, trained by Themba, now teach at schools or have created their own bands. Among the alumni are Friendly Drummer, Fresh Crew, Inkwambula Ink and Steyn City High School.  Some of these bands will join us on the 20th July 2019.

We are also thrilled to welcome Kingsway College, SAHETI School and Alexandra High School to our festival.

The festival promises to be an exquisite jam session celebrating the skills, commitment and passion of young learners in Johannesburg.

Our thanks go to the SAMRO Foundation, The Hermann Olthaver Trust, Rand Merchant Bank, Ford Foundation and Bread for the World for making this festival possible.
