Some of the music students from Bergvliet High School participated in the Cape Town International Jazz Festival’s Training and Development Programme. This programme took place every Saturday in February at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC).

The Music and Career workshops introduced students to the various options and opportunities of employment within the music industry. They were presented by industry professionals and mentors, providing training within music industry standards for high school learners who are pursuing music as a career choice.

The participating schools this year were Bergvliet High School, South Peninsula High School, Parel Vallei High School, Chris Hani High School, Eerste River High School, Kronnendal Music Academy, Mitchell’s Plain Music Academy and Khayelitsha IMAD Music School.

The respective schools ran weekly practice sessions designed to prepare them for the live performance that took place on Sunday 18 March at the Artscape Theatre. The practice sessions took place at the various schools and at the CMI in Athlone.

Those attending the programme learnt about events planning, marketing, music as a business, performance, branding and time management. In addition they also had two rehearsals with famous Capetonian saxophonist Donveno Prins as their mentor. Khosi Nakana (baritone saxophone) and Joshua Wheatley (piano) from Bergvliet High were chosen to perform with the All Star Band. This was quite an honour considering that only one or two students per school were chosen from 10 bands.

This All Star Band performed at the Cape Town International Jazz Festival’s free concert, held at Greenmarket Square on Tuesday 20 March. They will also performing at the Guga S’thebe Complex in Langa on Sunday (25 March).
