Don’t Miss Our Sunset Concert! Sunday 10 March, 16h00

Sunday 10 March 24: WBHS Music Department takes huge delight in inviting you to the first Sunset Concert of the year. Once again we’ll be at the John Baxter Amphitheatre, weather Gods permitting (or in the Clegg Hall), please join us to enjoy the Sound of Wynberg Music, with special guests, the Riebeeck-Kasteel Steel Band.

As always, entrance is free, but tradition asks guests to bring Easter Egg strings for our Service Pillar to assist those less fortunate. Any cash donations will be given directly to our Music Department to help fund our instruments and support our award-winning bands and ensembles.

Dress for the Cape autumn weather, bring camping seats and blankets, and kick back and revel in the concert! Picnic hampers are welcome.
