Music comes to the fore

A number of choirs are established: the Dinaledi Singers, the Nubian Voices, the A’Capella Singers, later called the Madrigal Singers, and a chamber choir. The Parents’ Association provides funds to buy orchestral and band instruments, and later marimbas are added to the collection.

A windestra is formed, consisting of flute, clarinet, saxophone, drums, viola and cello, playing both baroque and jazz music. A smaller ensemble group is formed with cello, flute, clarinet and recorder, and later a quintet is established. A guitar group accompanies the hymns at assemblies on Wednesdays.

In the Junior School, every Grade 2 girl learns to play the recorder while every Grade 3 pupil has an opportunity to produce sounds on flutes, clarinets and violins. Orff instruments, introduced many years earlier, enable all the children to play simultaneously.
