Music at Wynberg has developed into one of the premiere areas of excellence at the school. Every year, our bands take top awards at the Eisteddfod, performing throughout the year at professional functions. Our vocal ensemble, which features our top singers, has recently performed at the Grahamstown National Arts Festival, to high acclaim. The choir consists of over fifty boys who rehearse weekly, with a wide repertoire of songs. Many of these boys are not taking music lessons, but are still able to participate in the music of the school.

This is all due to the tireless work of our music staff, who strive to create a fun and engaging environment where boys can experiment and develop their musical skills. All boys are required to play in one of our bands: the concert band, the jazz band, the steel drum bands and the pipe band.

Our annual Concert In The Quad, and our lunchtime concerts provide opportunities for boys who are interested in music, but do not play in any of the bands, to perform and showcase their skills.
