THERE is a mystique that surrounds the violin and last week our Little Oaks got a visit from Mr Andreas Seidel, an associate concert master and who plays the first violin at the Gewandhaus Orchestra in Leipzig, Germany.
Our Little Oaks learnt many interesting facts such as the violin is one of the most well-known stringed instruments in the world and has been around for nearly 500 years. It is played with a bow and the bow typically contains 150 to 200 horse hairs.
After the Little Oaks got a good look at the violin and bow, Mr Seidel played a few songs for his young audience. All sat quietly, amazed and entranced by the beautiful music and the sophistication of this magnificent instrument.

We have been taught that we need three meals a day in order to make it through the day and while most of us indulge in more than our fair share there is a large portion of South Africans who are living off barely enough to sustain them.
