Wynberg's Music Stalwart, Brian Botha - the Farewell Function

View photos of Mr Brian Botha's farewell on Flickr

Friday 19 October 2018: Guests gathered in the Clegg Hall to hear a wide range of stories, memories and salutes to Brian Botha at the celebration of his extensive career at Wynberg. Tributes (and exposés) from Gareth Randall, Deneen Botha, Steven Doidge, Daphne Jubber, Keenan Oliphant, Julian Taylor, and Larry Moser prompted many a laugh and tear.

As a tribute to Mr Botha’s massive influence on the school’s cultural development, the musical performances were true to Wynberg’s trademark of the highest quality – “Old Man River” sung by Yiming Kong and Malcolm Scarrott, “For Good” arranged by Amy Campbell and sung by the inimitable vocal ensemble, “Here’s to the Heroes” sung by a combined choir of Old Boys and current learners and conducted by Amy Campbell, music from the String Ensemble led by Mr Conrad van Breda, the ever-present Concert Band’s resounding performances conducted by Mr Peter Catzavelos, and a breath-taking rendition of Claude Debussy’s “Poisson d’Or” from Kevin Kim – a past pupil of Mr Botha and currently studying B. Mus Honours in Piano Performance at SACM UCT. Afterwards guests enjoyed tea and sumptuous sweet treats reflecting Mr Botha’s enjoyment of the fine things in life. It was an all-round display of Wynberg’s best for a much loved stalwart!
