The Outreach Foundation is excited to announce the 1st Inner City High Schools Marimba Festival. This year learners from 4 inner-city schools: Phoenix College, Centurion College, Our Lady of Wisdom School and Barnato Park High School, have been attending weekly marimba workshops facilitated by Themba Moyo.
Many alumni of Themba’s marimba programme at Outreach Foundation now teach at schools or have created their own bands. These include Friendly Drummer, Fresh Crew, Inkwambula Ink and Steyn City High School. Some of these bands will join us on the day.
We also welcome Kingsway College, SAHETI School and Alexandra High School to our festival.
This year’s festival promises to be an exquisite jam session celebrating the
skills, commitment and passion of young learners in Johannesburg.
Thank you to the SAMRO Foundation, The Hermann Olthaver Trust, Rand
Merchant Bank, Ford Foundation and Bread for the World.
